21:30 GMT, 20 September 2012
Steve Clarke will sit down with Jeremy Peace to discuss Dan Ashworth’s replacement, with West Brom’s head coach determined to find someone he can work with.
Ashworth, the club’s sporting and technical director, is leaving to take up a post with the Football Association and the search has started to identify his successor.

Clarke is keen to replicate the ‘honest’ relationship he enjoys with Ashworth and said: 'I think it’s important for the club to find someone I could work with.
'I haven’t spoken to the chairman about it yet but he is coming to the training ground and we’ll have a chat about how we can push it forwards.
'Of course, Dan will be involved in those discussions.'
