34-Year-Old Defender West Bromwich Albion Premier
McAuley came back from a calf injury to play the entire 120 minutes of Tuesday’s Capital One Cup second round win over Oxford United.
McAuley spent preseason on the sidelines with a calf injury and manager Alan Irvine will be pleased the centre back came through the 120 minutes unscathed. McAuley has been a mainstay of West Brom’s defence since promotion in 2011/12 with a solid clean sheet total in each season. Fantasy owners would be cautious to note he is now 34 plus manager Irvine recruited Joleon Lescott earlier this summer thus putting his starting position under considerable threat.
