Premier League new-boys West Bromwich Albion opened their pre-season friendly campaign with a 3-0 win over Kidderminster.

Abdoulaye Meite scored his first goal for the club as Roberto di Matteo's men cruised to victory at Aggborough.

Ishmael Miller netted the opener on 11 minutes, Roman Bednar doubled the lead on 68 and Meite got in on the act 17 minutes from time.

The Baggies fielded different sides in each half.

There were no such goalscoring exploits by Blackburn, who played out a goalless draw against Sturm Graz in Austria.

On a hot day at the UPC Arena, there were few chances for either side, but it was the Austrians who had the better of the play, especially in the first half.
