WEST Bromwich Albion are paying tribute to the victims of last month’s Stourbridge stabbings with a minutes silence before their match against Liverpool this Sunday.

Tracey Wilkinson and her Baggies supporting son Pierce were killed in the attack at their Greyhound Lane Home in Norton on March 30.

Their husband and father Peter was also stabbed in the incident and after fighting for his life in hospital, he is now recovering following surgery.

The club, who met with the family this week to discuss an appropriate tribute, have decided to hold a minute’s applause before kick-off to celebrate the lives of Tracey and Pierce, and said Peter is determined to attend the televised match just two weeks after the attack.

Albion chief executive Martin Goodman said: “We know from the huge public reaction to the incident just how much these awful events have shocked everyone and it is difficult for us to imagine what Peter, Lydia and their loved ones are going through.

“It says everything about Peter’s strength of character that he has fought back from life-threatening injuries and is now so determined to return to The Hawthorns on Sunday to watch the team he loves.

“They have asked us to celebrate the lives of Tracey and Pierce and I am sure all Baggies fans will want to do so in the spirit of community support and understanding for what they are enduring.”

The club confirmed season-ticket holders Peter, daughter Lydia – who was away from the family home at university when the attack took place – and other family members, will be guests for the game and the club have also arranged for a tribute to appear in the matchday programme.
