Ridgewell admits Olsson return big West Brom boost

West Bromwich Albion defender Liam Ridgewell says their survival chances will be boosted by the return of Jonas Olsson.

Olsson was back from a two-match ban as Albion took a major step towards avoiding the drop with a 1-0 win at Norwich on Saturday.

"Craig Dawson has done very well and coming in for Jonas was especially difficult given the position we were in," said Ridgewell.

"He has showed he can play at this level. But Jonas is a top centre-back and it makes for good competition for places."
