Baggies miss suspended duo

West Brom are without captain Darren Purse and midfielder Neil Clement for tomorrow’s match with Norwich at The Hawthorns.

West Brom are without captain Darren Purse and midfielder Neil Clement for tomorrow’s match with Norwich at The Hawthorns.

Central defender Purse starts a three-match ban after he was found guilty of violent conduct during the match at Newcastle last month.

Clement is serving the second game of a three-match suspension after being found guilty of violent conduct following his punch-up with Fulham striker Andy Cole on September 18.

Darren Moore will continue as the replacement for Purse with Riccardo Scimeca once again pushed forward into midfield to cover for Clement.

Albion midfielder Andy Johnson (back), left-back Paul Robinson (knee and flu) and striker Kanu (ankle) are all expected to be fit after injury problems.

Welsh internationals Jason Koumas and Robert Earnshaw are expected to be on the bench.

Provisional squad: Hoult, Kuszczak, Scimeca, Moore, Contra, Gaardsoe, Albrechtsen, Robinson, Haas, Greening, Koumas, Gera, Johnson, Kanu, Horsfield, Earnshaw, Sakiri, Dobie, A Chambers.
