No goals: Steve Clarke watched his side draw
West Brom manager Steve Clarke watched his side waste a number of chances as they played out a goalless draw against Barnsley at Oakwell.
Despite dominating proceedings the Baggies were unable to make their openings count, with Shane Long hitting the post in the second half with a header.
Clarke can take some consolation from the fact Zoltan Gera made his first start in eight months as he continues his comeback from a knee injury.
Southampton's pre-season fixture at St Mary's ended in a 1-0 defeat to Eredivisie champions Ajax.
Aras Ozbiliz's goal separated the two sides, the young winger finding the target after 64 minutes with a low strike.
Norwich enjoyed a better result in their friendly at Peterborough, beating the London Road outfit 2-0.
Steve Morison gave the Canaries the lead after 32 minutes and James Vaughan wrapped up the scoring four minutes from time.
The second consecutive clean sheet will have pleased Chris Hughton.
Elsewhere, Fulham beat Wycombe 3-0, with goals from new boy Mladen Petric, Bryan Ruiz and Steve Sidwell.
