West Brom hit with injury blow

West Brom defender Goran Popov

West Brom boss Steve Clarke is sweating on the fitness of James Morrison for the Wigan game, but Goran Popov has been ruled out.

The Scotland midfielder came off in the 78th minute in Saturday’s 3-0 win at Southampton with a groin problem and was replaced by Billy Jones.

Popov could be out for up to a fortnight after picking up a calf injury the day before the St Mary’s Stadium clash.

Chris Brunt, who missed the Saints encounter due to a knee problem, remains a doubt for Saturday’s home game with the relegation-threatened Latics.

While Marc-Antoine Fortune will serve the first game of his three-match ban for his red card on the south coast against Roberto Martinez’s men.

But Clarke will be able to call on Youssouf Mulumbu again after he completed his three-match suspension.
