Albion await news on duo

Pulis hopes internationals return injury-free

JONNY Evans and James Morrison will be given late checks ahead of this Saturday's game with Sunderland.

And Tony Pulis is keeping his fingers crossed that his international players return from duty unscathed.

The Baggies boss said: "We're hoping everyone returns back ok. Evans and Morrison are still being assessed at this stage. We will see how they are but both are doubts.

"Many of the players won't be back in till later this week. Salomon, Sess and Cristian for instance don't come back until late Thursday or early Friday. It's ridiculous really but there's nothing we can do about it."

Northern Ireland, including Chris Brunt and Gareth McAuley, qualified for Euro 2016 last week, with Wales - James Chester was an unused substitute in their game against Bosnia - also booking their place in next summer's tournament.

Newport-born Pulis added: "We will see Saturday how much of a boost it is for the lads who have qualified. To see Wales and Northern Ireland qualify is wonderful. 

"It's pleasing to see them both qualify when you think of the nations who usually qualify - it's good to see other nations get their success. To have so many home nations at the Euros next summer will be good for everyone.

"I hope we will see a reaction from those players – if we do, brilliant."
