Team news for Hammers clash

15 September 2017

HAL Robson-Kanu returns to contention for Albion's Premier League clash against West Ham United on Saturday.

The Wales international striker has completed a three-match suspension having been sent off in the 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Hal stepped off the bench to slot home the solitary winning goal before seeing red following an aerial challenge with Clarets defender Matthew Lowton.

Albion saw a subsequent appeal rejected and the Baggies man has missed the last three matches against Accrington Stanley, Stoke City and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Ahead of the clash against the Hammers, head coach Tony Pulis will assess Nacer Chadli, who missed out last weekend with a slight thigh strain, and Oliver Burke, who picked up a hamstring complaint for the Under-23s in midweek.

“We have got one or two little knocks but we won't know exactly whether they'll be okay or not until Saturday,” said Pulis.

“Nacer is one of the ones who has still got a problem, we will have to have a look again to see how he is. Oli Burke is another one.”

Returning centre-back Gareth McAuley enjoyed 45 minutes for Albion's Premier League 2 side earlier this week having been sidelined with a thigh injury.

Pulis added: “We are pleased Gareth got 45 minutes in for the Under-23s and had a week's training which is a bonus for us.

“Whether he is ready to go on Saturday, we will have to wait and see.”

Tickets are now on general sale for Albion’s encounter against West Ham (ko 3pm).

Seats are priced £30 adults, £24 seniors (60+), £20 full-time students and young adults (22 and under) and £12 juniors (under-17s).

Tickets can be bought online, in person from the East Stand Ticket Office or by calling 0121 227 2227.
