West Brom boss Steve Clarke has hailed the "drive and determination" of midfielder Zoltan Gera to return to action after eight months out of action.
The 33-year-old Hungary international made his comeback from a knee ligament setback as a substitute during Wednesday night's 3-0 pre-season friendly win over FC Copenhagen in Denmark.
Clarke said: "I'm absolutely delighted for Zoltan. He's a fantastic lad who has worked ever so hard and a lot of credit needs to go back to him."
He added: "He's the wrong side of 30 but has the drive and determination to be on the pitch and is fresh and hungry."
Gera made only three appearances last season after re-signing for a second spell at Albion having missed the early part of the campaign following ankle surgery.
