One change from cup success over Hammers
DARREN Fletcher returned to Albion’s starting XI for today’s Barclays Premier League encounter at Sunderland (3pm ko).
The Baggies captain was cup-tied for last weekend’s impressive 4-0 triumph over West Ham in their FA Cup clash at The Hawthorns.
Fletcher returned in place of Stephane Sessegnon, who dropped to the bench against his former employers at the Stadium of Light.
It represented the only change from the side who started against the Hammers.
