West Brom are still without James Morrison because of his ongoing hamstring as they welcome struggling Norwich to the Hawthorns.

The Scotland international has been absent for two months since picking up the injury during the game at Chelsea in mid-January and the clash with the Canaries will come too soon for him to return.

Winger Callum McManaman is unlikely to feature with an ankle problem, while Craig Dawson and Jonny Evans are doubts with respective ankle and hamstring issues.

Chris Brunt is out until next season after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace last month.

A win for Albion will take them over 40 points and give them their best run of results over a five-match period in their Premier League history after wins against Everton, Crystal Palace and Manchester United and a 2-2 draw at leaders Leicester.

However boss Tony Pulis is keen to prevent complacency creeping in against Alex Neil’s side which occupies the final relegation place.

“We’ve got 19 points from 11 games I’ve just been told,” he said.

“Eight undefeated at home so we’re in a good run of form. We’ve played really well in those games as well.

“We need to keep it going with nine games to go.

“Obviously the confidence in the club is sky high. We know Saturday will be a tough game – Norwich are fighting for their lives and there are no easy games in the Premier League.

“We’ve just got to make sure everybody stays grounded and continues the hard work we’ve put in.”
