Tony Pulis has indicated that Gareth McAuley will likely need a couple of weeks before he is ready to return to action meaning he will definitely miss out as Albion host Bournemouth in Week 1 action.
With Jonny Evans, Chris Brunt, and Nacer Chadli all returning from minor pre-season injuries Tony Pulis' side is pretty well positioned to weather McAuley's absence without too much concern. In fact, it is probably wise for Pulis to start planning for life with McAuley as more of a valuable reserve than a sure-fire starter. At 37-years-old McAuley's health has been exceptional in recent seasons but it's hard to imagine he can keep going too much longer starting week-after-week. Aug 11 - 11:08 AM
