McAuley admits Dawson has West Brom defenders looking over shoulder

Gareth McAuley admits West Bromwich Albion's senior defenders are looking over their shoulder at Craig Dawson.

The defender is on-loan at Bolton Wanderers.

"He's making good progress and he will have a big future, not only for his talent but his work ethic and his application," said McAuley.

"That's second to none. I know people at Bolton who are very impressed with him and how he has continued to get better.

"He's been unlucky with the partnership Jonas and I have had as that means he's not played as often but he's still young.

"But his time will come. I didn't play professional football until I was 24. Craig got a chance before then and he's making the most of it."
