Head coach has no fresh injury concerns following Spain trip

PEPE Mel could be boosted by the return of Billy Jones, Stephane Sessegnon and Jonas Olsson for Saturday's Hawthorns clash with Fulham (ko 3pm). 

The trio all missed Albion's 1-1 draw with Chelsea nine days ago but are back in contention after coming through a six-day training camp in Spain.

The Hawthorns chief says he will be without Claudio Yacob (hamstring) and Nicolas Anelka (shin) at the weekend. 

"We have all players available other than Yacob and Anelka," said Mel.

"It's possible Yacob will train tomorrow but I am sure he will not play against Fulham.

"Everyone else is good and looking forward to a good match.

"Nicolas had his first training today but he will not be fit in time to play against Fulham."
