Baggies caretaker boss has injury concerns for last game in charge at St Mary's

Basingstoke Gazette: Keith Downing Keith Downing

West Brom caretaker head coach Keith Downing will be without full-back Billy Jones for his last game in charge, against Saints in the Premier League tomorrow.

Downing will revert to his backroom role after the St Mary's trip following the appointment of Spaniard Pepe Mel last night.

He will need to cope without Jones, who has had an operation on an injury to his eye.

Jones' fellow defender Goran Popov (neck) is out, while recent absentees Youssuf Mulumbu and Victor Anichebe are back in training but unlikely to feature.

Downing has "one or two" unspecified others who are rated 50-50 to be fit for the match.

Provisional squad: Foster, Myhill, Daniels, Ridgewell, Olsson, McAuley, Lugano, Brunt, Sessegnon, Amalfitano, Mulumbu, Berahino, Yacob, Vydra, Long, Anelka, Morrison, Dawson, Reid, Sinclair, Anichebe, Gera, Rosenberg.

No doubt the XI put out on Saturday will be trying harder to impress the new boss, whether they are good enough is another question.
