Home » EPL, Latest » Match Preview: West Brom vs Aston Villa

West Brom striker Marc-Antoine Fortune is fit to return.

Fortune missed last weekend’s shock 1-0 away success over Liverpool with a hamstring injury.

Midfielder Paul Scharner is likely to be available despite cracking a bone in his wrist at Anfield. Midfielders Zoltan Gera and James Morrison (both knee) and right-back Steven Reid (foot) remain on the injury list.

Aston Villa defender Richard Dunne is available after two and a half months out of action with a broken collarbone.

Under-fire Villa boss Alex McLeish has to decide whether to give an instant recall to Dunne who suffered the setback against his former club, Manchester City, in early February.

Fellow defender James Collins is still battling to overcome his recent groin problem while McLeish will check on the fitness of midfielder Stephen Ireland (hamstring) and striker Emile Heskey (Achilles).

Villa have won only one of their last 13 games and fans called for McLeish’s sacking during the midweek home defeat by Bolton.

Albion (from): Foster, Daniels, Fulop, Jones, Olsson, McAuley, Dawson, Ridgewell, Shorey, Mulumbu, Scharner, Brunt, Andrews, Thomas, Dorrans, Tchoyi, Cox, Fortune, Long, Odemwingie, Hurst, Roofe, Berahino
