Anichebe doubtful for Stoke City clash

Having pick up an injury in West Brom 1-0 win over Newcastle, Victor Anichebe is struggling to be fit for Saturday’s home game against Stoke City.

The 27 – year – old put up one of his best displays in a West Brom jersey on Monday night with the Baggies fans giving him a standing ovation when he was substituted two minutes from time.

“He was fantastic. We hope his hamstring injury isn’t too bad, we could use him. We’ve got a number of options up front and, obviously, it’s been difficult for him to come in, “ said his team mate Gareth McAuley.

“He’s a little bit sore, so the medical people will look at that hopefully. There’s a game just around the corner so, hopefully, we can wheel him out again.”

Anichebe, who starred for the Dream Team at the 2008 Olympic Games, has netted 9 goals for the Baggies since he joined the club from Everton in 2013.
