West Brom striker Long full of praise for Clarke

West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long is full of praise for manager Steve Clarke.

The Scot has been impressive in his first season in charge.

Long told Absolute Radio's Rock 'N' Roll Football: "Yeah, I've been very fortunate over my career to have played under big managers like Steve Coppell and Ray Hudson and now the Boss so. You know he's very good, he understands the game really well and he prepares you during the week better than any than I've ever played under for the game on the Saturday. And there's no one better than him to our chances and so we'll be ready for the game on Saturday and hopefully we can get the win."
