West Brom have been boosted by the news that three of their injured players are set to be fit for next week’s home tie against relegation-threatened Norwich City.

Craig Dawson (foot), Jonny Evans (hamstring) and Callum McManaman (ankle) have all missed time with their various injuries, but in an interview with Paul Suart of the Birmingham Mail, Dr Mark Gillett, the man who is in charge of the club’s medical staff, said that he is optimistic that the trio will all be fit for next Saturday’s game against Alex Neil’s side.

He said:

We are optimistic all three will be in contention by the time the Norwich game comes around. Callum has been out the longest of this trio but he has already returned to a level of training. I am hopeful he should be able to step that up next week.

Gillett also gave an update on the status of Baggies’ midfielder James Morrison and said that the Scottish international isn’t too far away from a return and that the club’s medical team have to ensure that the player doesn’t try and push himself too hard as he could re-aggravate the hamstring injury that has kept him out for so long.

Mozza is desperate to get out there again and of course we understand his impatience. But you have to be careful players don’t try to do too much too soon.
