Clarke: Mozza should be fit

And head coach has no fresh injury concerns

STEVE Clarke has backed James Morrison to be fit to face Arsenal at The Hawthorns on Saturday (ko 3pm). 

The 26-year-old midfielder withdrew from Scotland duty after suffering a hamstring injury in Albion’s 0-0 draw at Stoke three weeks ago. 

And the Baggies boss has issued his squad with a clean bill of health - with the exception of long-term absentees Zoltan Gera and George Thorne. 

“James Morrison is good and this week, at various stages, I’ve had everybody out on the training pitch,” said Clarke.

“When you get to this stage of the season there’s always two or three knocks and niggles.

“There will be doubts up until kick-off but fingers crossed I’ve got everybody fit and available.

“Obviously, Youssouf Mulumbu misses out due to suspension.”
