Three changes for Swans visit

11 February 2015

Ideye, Berahino and Morrison recalled

ALBION showed three changes for tonight’s Barclays Premier League clash at home to Swansea (8pm ko) from the starting XI who drew 2-2 at Burnley on Sunday.

In came Brown Ideye, whose second-half header levelled matters at Turf Moor, Saido Berahino and James Morrison.

Chris Baird and Stephane Sessegnon dropped to the bench while Victor Anichebe missed out altogether due to the injury he sustained after just 18 minutes at the weekend.

January signing and new captain Darren Fletcher was handed his home debut at The Hawthorns.

There were also places on the bench for fit-again goalkeeper Boaz Myhill and Jonas Olsson, who has been missing since September due to an Achilles injury.
