Bristol Rovers v West Brom

Bristol Rovers v West Brom
West Bromwich Albion have beaten Bristol Rovers 1-0 thanks to a header from Graham Dorrans.

The Baggies had to start the game with young Canadian Marcus Haber playing as a lone striker as Simon Cox, Ishmael Miller and Roman Bednar all missed the game through injury. Luke Daniels also missed out for Rovers through injury.

In a typical pre season friendly there were few bright spots but Roberto Di Matteo will be glad to keep the first team's 100 per cent record in pre season games.

The next of Albion's six pre season games comes at Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday night.

ROVERS: (4-3-3) Green; Regan, Coles, Anthony, Sawyer; Brown (Richards 79), Campbell (C), Lines (Reece 65); Hughes, Kuffour (Powell 79), Hoskins (Duffy 65). Subs not used: Clough, Pell, Clarke.

LBION (4-2-3-1): Carson (C); S Reid (Zuiverloon 64), Ibanez (Meite HT), Olsson (Tamas HT), Mattock (Barnett 64); Mulumbu, Brunt (R Reid 72); Morrison (Mantom 72), Dorrans, Thomas (Barnes 64); Haber (Moore HT). Sub not used: Kiely (gk).

GOAL: ALBION - Dorrans (50).
