James Morrison: West Brom midfielder out of Norwich City game

Norwich City have lost just one of their last four trips to West Brom going into Saturday’s latest Premier League encounter at The Hawthorns.

Team news

West Brom midfielder James Morrison remains sidelined with a hamstring problem, while Callum McManaman  is also unlikely to feature owing to an ankle injury.

Craig Dawson (ankle) and Jonny Evans (hamstring) are also doubts, while Chris Brunt is out until next season after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury last month.

Norwich, meanwhile, are likely to be without Nathan Redmond for a few weeks due to the ankle injury that forced him off against Manchester City last weekend. Robbie Brady and Steven Naismith will be assessed after missing that game with calf and hamstring injuries respectively.
