West Brom caretaker boss starts afresh with players
West Bromwich Albion caretaker manager Keith Downing will consider players who found themselves out of favour under Steve Clarke. Several players lacked regular first-team opportunities, most notably Graham Dorrans, Goran Popov, James Morrison, Saido Berahino and Nicolas Anelka, all of whom have missed out for a variety of reasons.
"There is now a new set of eyes on them," Downing told the Birmingham Mail. "We have 23/24 players who all want to be in the starting line-up.
"It's a clean slate and it freshens things up. Someone might want something different so everyone comes into the equation."
