Mel upbeat on injury front

Boss provides update on key quartet

PEPE Mel has not ruled out Claudio Yacob and Billy Jones being available for Saturday’s trip to Norwich (ko 3pm).

And the Baggies boss has been given a major boost with the news Victor Anichebe is fit to face the Canaries after shaking off the hamstring injury that forced him to miss the Cardiff draw.

Both Yacob and Jones have returned to training following hamstring injuries and will be closely assessed in the build up to the Carrow Road trip.

The game will come too soon for captain Chris Brunt, who is targeting an earlier-than-expected comeback from a knee problem against Tottenham on Saturday week.

“Chris Brunt is our only problem and gradually the others are joining back in with training,” said Mel.

“Claudio trained with the team today and he felt well and it’s now down to me – Jones also.”
