Scotland international James Morrison out for two months


Scotland international James Morrison is set to be out for up to two months with a knee injury picked up during West Brom’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Morrison, who is out of contract this summer, has played 19 times for the Premier League side scoring four times.

There is further bad news for both West Brom and Scotland with the news that Darren Fletcher is to undergo a scan on Monday after he went off injured at half time in the 3-0 defeat at Southampton on Saturday.

The former Manchester United midfielder has also picked up a knee injury, but there is no news on the extent of it until he has a scan.

Speaking after the defeat to Southampton West Brom manager Tony Pulis, said: “The worrying thing is we lost Morrison at Chelsea and we’ve lost Fletcher toda. That’s two very important midfield players for us and two players who’ve been very good this year.

“We don’t need that. We haven’t got a big enough squad to cope with those sort of injuries. We need to assess Fletcher.”
