The Baggies senior squad and staff returned home from Spain, where they spent a week on a mid-season training camp in the Costa Blanca region.

But it is back to familiar settings of the club’s Walsall training base today for Carlos Corberan and his players as league action will resume following a pause of four weeks and a couple of days with the trip to Sunderland in seven days.

Albion tackle the Black Cats, promoted from League One last season, at the Stadium of Light a week tonight for a fixture moved for television broadcast.

The Baggies hope to have Grady Diangana in training having nursed long-term absentees Semi Ajayi and Daryl Dike back to fitness, the latter pair featured in the club’s 1-0 friendly defeat to Elche on Friday.
