JAMES Morrison is bidding to be fit for Albion’s festive fixtures after responding well to a minor Achilles procedure.
The Scotland international has made six appearances for the Baggies this term but has been hindered by a niggle in his right heel.
The Club’s Director of Performance, Mark Gillett, is hopeful ‘Mozza’ will be back in contention for the busy Christmas period.
“We wanted to give it a couple of weeks to see it would settle,” said Gillett.
“Though he made some progress we thought the time was right to get him ready for the Christmas period.
“His Achilles has been grumbling and the international break provided us with the opportunity to address the issue.
“The procedure was done by a Dutch surgeon in Portugal last Thursday and we are pleased with the results.
“James will now be working hard to ensure he is back to full fitness as soon as possible.”
