West Brom go into their penultimate game of pre-season against Oxford United on what will be the hottest day of the year on Tuesday evening.

They do so having strengthened further from their draw with Crewe Alexandra last time out, too.

West Brom have held talks with Okay Yokuslu following his release from Celta Vigo earlier this summer. The Turkish international spent the second half of the 2020/21 campaign on loan at The Hawthorns as they were relegated from the Premier League.

Okay Yokuslu was confirmed as the fourth permanent signing of the summer on Monday, joining on a three-year deal after leaving La Liga side Celta Vigo.

And the Albion fans making the trip to the Kassam Stadium will be hoping to see their former loanee back in action for the first time on what is going to be an absolute scorcher of an evening.

Here’s all the details needed ahead of the clash.

The game is scheduled to get underway at 19:45

Is the game on TV?

With just two games remaining beore the season gets underway at Middlesbrough, Steve Bruce will look to get plenty of minutes into those he is considering first choice.

Yokuslu could make his debut if his work permit arrives in time, otherwise, it will be the same squad of players available that drew 1-1 with League Two side Crewe last time out.

Head-to-head record

Whilst you obviously can’t read too much into head-to-head records for a pre-season friendly - we thought we’d throw it together anyway.

Both have faced off just 23 times in competitive action over the years with the Albion coming out on top 12 times to Oxford’s five.

The two haven’t played each other in a league game since the turn of the Millenium - the last time coming in 1999 when West Brom ran out 2-0 winners at the Hawthorns.
