West Brom boosted by duo's return

West Bromwich Albion's Jonny Evans

Jonny Evans and Claudio Yacob passed fit, while Saturday's opponents West Ham have doubts over striker

West Bromwich Albion's Jonny Evans is available for a first Premier League match since 2 January, Tony Pulis has confirmed.

The defender has missed the Baggies' last four fixtures with a calf strain, but joins Claudio Yacob in returning to full fitness for Saturday's trip to West Ham United

“It’s massive to have both he and Jonny Evans back for this match," head coach Pulis told wba.co.uk. “Yacob has been outstanding for us this season. We certainly have a couple of decisions to make.”  

While West Brom boast a clean bill of health, West Ham, who lie a place and five points behind Albion, could be without a number of key players including Andy Carroll (the striker needs one more goal to become the fifth Hammers player to score 30 PL goals for the club).
