West Brom boss remains patient over star’s fitness

James MorrisonWest Brom boss Steve Clarke will give midfielder James Morrison every opportunity to prove his fitness ahead of Saturday’s game.

Clarke has urged his players to go on and set a new record for points in a Premier League season as his side prepare to travel to the capital to face West Ham.

The 49-year-old believes he has been lucky over the international break to get key players back without any kind of injuries and the only doubt ahead of kick-off is Morrison who did not go away on international duty with Scotland and will face a late fitness test on Saturday.

Graham Dorrans will return to the squad after starting for Gordan Strachan’s side in the 2-1 loss to Wales, but Steven Reid (groin), George Thorne (knee) and Zoltan Gera (knee) remain long-term absentees.
