Reserves at West Brom

Alan Hutton makes his return from injury for our reserves against West Brom at The Hawthorns tonight (Monday, 7pm).

The Scottish international was back in full training last week after four months out with a foot injury.

He is joined in the squad by Michael Dawson, Pascal Chimbonda, Gilberto and Ricardo Rocha while a number of Academy players make the trip after their 5-0 win at Chelsea on Saturday.

Ryan Mason, who scored twice against the Blues and fellow goalscorers Paul-Jose M'poko and Dean Parrett are in the squad alongside Adam Smith and Calum Butcher.

The reserves beat Chelsea 5-0 last week and Clive Allen is hoping that has set the tone for a busy end to the campaign in the Barclays Premier Reserve League South.

"It's important the seniors show the same sort of attutide towards the games, allied with the enthusiasm and energy of the youngsters," said development coach Clive. "It also gives the younger players an insight into the quality and level they have to aspire to."

Squad: Alnwick, Ranieri, Hutton, Rocha, Berchiche. Gilberto, Dawson, Chimbonda, Rose, Livermore, Maghoma, Butcher, M'poku, Parrett, Mason, Smith.
