Olsson back for Baggies

Olsson back for Baggies

West Brom centre-back Jonas Olsson will return after a one-match suspension for the home Barclays Premier League clash with Newcastle on Sunday.

Olsson’s probable recall alongside Gareth McAuley means Liam Ridgewell is likely to revert from central defence to left-back in place of Nicky Shorey.

Albion are hopeful striker Peter Odemwingie will be fit after missing the 1-1 draw at Wigan last weekend with a hamstring injury. Midfielder Zoltan Gera (knee) and right-back Steven Reid (foot) remain long-term absentees.

Provisional squad: Foster, Daniels, Jones, Olsson, McAuley, Tamas, Dawson, Ridgewell, Shorey, Mulumbu, Brunt, Scharner, Andrews, Morrison, Dorrans, Thomas, Tchoyi, Cox, Fortune, Long, Odemwingie.
