West Bromwich Albion full-back Billy Jones is expecting a tough test when he comes up against Gareth Bale this afternoon.

Jones believes that West Brom will need to keep Bale quiet when Tottenham Hotspur visit The Hawthorns later today if they are to get anything out of the game.

The former Preston North End man also praised Bale for his goal against Norwich City on Wednesday.

"His Norwich goal was right up there with the best goals he's scored. He's hard to stop once he gets moving because he is so quick," Jones told Albion's official website. "I think a player even took a swing around his midriff and he just kept going.

"Bale would be in my top 10 players in the league and I'd have him in my Premier League dream team. I think most people would agree he's a match winner.

"It's obviously going to be a difficult game and it will be hard for us to stop them, but if we're looking to get a win, that's what we have to do."

Spurs travel to West Brom at 1.30pm this afternoon.
