West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke says Craig Dawson faces a big challenge to break up their defensive partnership of Gareth McAuley and Jonas Olsson.

Dawson returns to Albion at the end of the season after a successful loan with Bolton Wanderers.

Clarke told the club's website: "Craig is back at the end of the month when his 90 days are finished.

"It's very possible he will get a chance.

"We've had somebody watching every game, I've spoken to Dougie Freedman and we've had good feedback.

"He's done well, but we expected him to."
