Clarke hails Baggies medical team

Published Add your comment

Steve Clarke has praised the part played by West Brom's medical staff in ensuring key striker Shane Long continues to play despite being constantly troubled by a hamstring injury.

Long has not completed a full 90 minutes this season but has still played a leading role in the Baggies fine start to the campaign through careful management of the setback.

Clarke said: "There is an injury to Shane that everyone knows about now through circumstances we couldn't control. Playing through an injury is just a measure of how much they want to play for the club, which is great. They put their body on the line and play with little injuries - but we also have had great help from our medical staff."
