Pocognoli suffers minor hamstring injury

Pocognoli sidelined with hamstring problem

SEBASTIEN Pocognoli is a doubt for Albion's Barclays Premier League trip to Chelsea on Saturday week after suffering a slight hamstring tear.

The Baggies left-back was forced off at half-time in Sunday's defeat to Newcastle.

He has withdrawn from international duty, which means he will miss Belgium's friendly with Iceland this Wednesday and Sunday's Euro 2016 qualifier with Wales.

Head coach Alan Irvine said: "It is not a major problem. 

"Sebastien should recover from it quite quickly. The international break allows him an opportunity to do so."
