Tony Pulis has confirmed that West Brom’s Jonny Evans will be out ‘for a few weeks’ because of a hamstring injury picked up at Reading.
The Baggies chief confirmed the news after watching his side crash out of the FA Cup fifth round at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday as Darren Fletcher’s opener was cancelled out by goals from Paul McShane, Michael Hector and Lucas Piazon for the Championship outfit.
Pulis, who is already without defensive duo Gareth McAuley and Craig Dawson because of injury, said: “I picked a good team, a strong team. The disappointing thing is Jonny Evans coming off with a hamstring injury late on, they get their third goal with Jonny off the pitch. He is going to be out for a few weeks now as well.”
Meanwhile, Albion have confirmed that they will punish any fan found guilty of throwing a coin at Chris Brunt from the away enclosure after the game, while police are treating the incident as assault with the Football Association also investigating.
