Baggies duo in contention for City clash

ALBION forwards Oliver Burke and Hal Robson-Kanu should both be in contention for Saturday’s Premier League test against Manchester City at The Hawthorns (ko 3pm).

Midfielder Gareth Barry is also expected to be fit while captain Jonny Evans remains doubtful because of the groin strain which forced him to limp out of the game against Southampton midway through the first half.

That problem is not thought to be serious but the Baggies will be without defender Craig Dawson, whose knee injury is still being assessed by the Club's medical team.

Fears that Dawson might have suffered cruciate damage have been cleared by the results of scans but Dr Mark Gillett, Albion's Director of Performance, is further assessing the defender's injury to establish a precise diagnosis.

Midfielder James Morrison is also struggling to feature against the unbeaten Premier League leaders as he continues his 'rehab' from an Achilles tendon injury.
