Olsson and Lambert to be assessed
JAMES Morrison has been ruled out of Albion’s Barclays Premier League clash with Southampton.
The midfielder was forced off with a knee injury after just seven minutes of Wednesday night’s 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Morrison will be assessed by the club’s medical staff, who will also monitor the fitness of Jonas Olsson.
The towering centre-half completed 90 minutes against the champions – his first action since leaving the pitch against Newcastle on Monday, December 28, owing to a hamstring strain.
Rickie Lambert missed the Chelsea game through illness, but Tony Pulis revealed the striker will be back in contention for a place in the squad at Saints.
The Baggies head coach also said that he will make a few late calls, following a cluttered period of games.
“It’s been a hectic schedule and a few of the players need to be assessed in training today before we make a decision on the team,” said Pulis.
