Dawson scored a goal on one shot (one on target) in Monday's 3-2 defeat to Everton.

While Dawson's not much of a goal scorer, having just scored three goals in 75 matches with West Brom throughout his career, he did well to slot away a header from close range to make the score 2-0. After a disastrous spell at center back in the opener, he's found a good home at right back and should keep his place in the starting XI whether or not he continues this goal scoring stretch.

While Manchester City's defense hasn't been a tight as it was early in the season, a home match against Bournemouth puts Aleksandar Kolarov at the top of the defender rankings.

Dawson is sidelined by a calf strain, but he is expected to be fit for West Brom's Premier League opener Aug. 10 against Manchester City, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Dawson's recovery became even more important to the Baggies after Gareth McAuley suffered a calf injury during Saturday's friendly with Swindon. West Brom are expected to be strong defensively this season under Tony Pulis, which could give Dawson considerably more fantasy value than he's had in seasons past.

Dawson is eligible to face Leicester City on Saturday after serving a one-match ban for picking up a red card March 22 against Arsenal.

Dawson has been a consistent starter under manager Tony Pulis, so his return is likely right back into the starting lineup.

The red card given to Gareth McAuley during last Sunday's match against Arsenal has been transferred to Dawson, the FA announced Monday.

The commission agreed that McAuley was sent off in error, as Dawson was responsible for the offense that led to the card. Dawson will serve a one-match suspension and be eligible to return April 11 against Leicester City.

Dawson took home a clean sheet in Saturday's 0-0 draw against Sunderland.

Dawson was played at right back by manager Tony Pulis in place of Andre Wisdom who dropped down to the bench. In all he made eight clearances, one interception, one tackle and was booked. Pulls still doesn't seem certain on his best back line and don't count on Dawson to start every week.

Dawson scored a 10th-minute header in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to West Ham.

Dawson flicked in Graham Dorrans' free kick to bring an end to the home side's 323-minute Premier League goal drought. More worrying for manager Alan Irvine is the fact Albion haven't kept a clean sheet in four straight games.

Dawson tallied a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 win against Leicester City.

Dawson's partnership with Joleon Lescott continues to go from strength-to-strength and the two were rarely tested in Saturday's win. Dawson has started every game at the heart of the defence and made it four clean sheets on the year.

Dawson was bid for multiple times by Burnley last summer, but he is now tied to West Brom until 2017. He has started all six Premier League matches so far this season, scoring one goal.
