West Bromwich Albion’s Zoltan Gera is in contention for a return to action to face former club Fulham tomorrow.

The midfielder left west London a year ago to sign up for his second spell at the midlands club but a knee ligament injury kept him on the sidelines at the Hawthorns for much of last term.

The Hungarian scored a stunning volley against Liverpool on the first day of the season but has been consigned to the substitute’s bench since.

Gera played twice for his country in the international break and that has put him in contention to play against his old side.

Baggies boss Clarke said: “He’s been very unlucky. If I’m honest, he exceeded my expectations over pre-season and he put himself in a position where I thought he was ready to play in the first game.

“I thought he would play a lot of it on adrenalin, which he did because it was such a big occasion for him, and the week after in training he dipped a little bit, which I half expected.

“Since then I’ve tried to look after him and he’s trained well. He has been away on international duty, represented his country twice and he’s back in pushing for selection again.”
