Vydra accepts crowded battle for West Brom start

Matej Vydra knows he faces a big challenge to break into the West Bromwich Albion starting XI.

Vydra faces a fierce battle to claim a first-team spot after seeing Victor Anichebe and Stephane Sessegnon sign and Saido Berahino emerge as a Premier League option during his lay-off.

Shane Long also remained despite a proposed switch to Hull and Nicolas Anelka is available. Vydra said: "Now we have about seven forwards and use two. I know I have to work hard to convince the manager. Nobody has a place for granted."
