Gareth McAuley started his second straight match for West Brom in Week 16 and the Baggies recorded their second straight clean sheet in the 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.
Craig Dawson appeared to be playing well and have supplanted veteran Gareth McAuley in the spine of Alan Irvine's starting line-up. Irvine appears to have done a 180 degree turn on that decision over the last two weeks and inserted McAuley back into the heart of the defense. The result has been two consecutive clean sheets and four points to show over the two matches. Whether this is a permanent change or just an extended break for Dawson remains to be seen. Regardless, it is good news for Albion that they have three quality center backs to choose from as the season wears on. Wed, Dec 17, 2014 03:25:00 PM
