West Brom team news: James Morrison could feature for the Baggies

West Brom team news: James Morrison could feature for the Baggies - Championship

West Bromwich Albion will be looking to carry on with their good form as they meet Crystal Palace in the third round of the League Cup.

The Baggies have started to enjoy life under Darren Moore this season after a tough start and will be looking to go as far as possible in the domestic tournaments.

The Hawthorns outfit, who have already managed to overcome Luton Town and Mansfield Town in the previous rounds, will be keen to test themselves against an opponent they faced in the Premier League last season.

And, according to a match preview by Sky Sports, it is understood that Moore does not have any concerns as they head into the home game against the Eagles.

James Morrison was the only man to have been considered a doubt for the cup clash, however, it is believed the midfielder could be in line to feature for the Baggies.

The 32-year-old had been suffering from a leg problem at the beginning of the month but managed to play just over an hour for the developmental side on Friday.

Moore is likely to make changes to the side that beat Millwall at the weekend, which could mean opportunities for the likes of Gareth Barry and Oliver Burke, who both featured in the previous round from the start.

The Verdict:

Moore will be pleased that he does not have any concerns heading into the game with Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.

The Baggies are on a fine run of form in the Championship at the moment, within touching distance of the leaders, and he will be keen to see his side continue to build their momentum.

It is likely he will make changes for the game and it could be a good chance to give Morrison an opportunity to get competitive football under his belt once again following his recent lay-off.
