Albion have left no stone unturned as they bid to keep players fit during the ongoing suspension of football – with all squad members given GPS monitors and recipes to ensure they stay healthy.

The Baggies last trained together as a group on March 17 with all the players then issued with individual programmes so they could work at home.

And Albion’s coaching staff have given them everything they need to stay in shape.

Each member of the squad completes their training schedule with a GPS monitor – with that information fed back to the coaches. The club also dropped off gym equipment for the players to use in their homes.

While they have also given the players recipes for breakfast and lunch.

Albion’s players normally eat those meals at their Walsall training base – while they prepare their evening meal themselves.

For breakfast, they are being encouraged to have three scrambled eggs with smoke salmon or toast with spinach.

For lunch, they are encouraged to have stir-fry while the club has also advised them on snacks and supplements.

Every player has been given their own individual programme – however injured trio Sam Field, Jonathan Leko and Nathan Ferguson are working to different routines to aid their rehabilitation.

Otherwise, Albion have a fully-fit squad with Grady Diangana and Ahmed Hegazi able to train to the same standard as everyone else.
