Key trio receive fitness boost
BRYAN Robson has been handed a timely boost ahead of Saturday's FA Cup clash
with Reading (ko 3pm) by the return to fitness of key trio Ronnie Wallwork,
Junichi Inamoto and Zoltan Gera

But the Baggies boss will be forced to make do without Neil Clement, who
suffered a head injury in Monday's 2-1 defeat by Villa, and Thomas Gaardsoe
(hamstring).


Wallwork sat out the derby date but has now managed to shake off the ankle
injury he picked up in the 1-0 New Year's Eve defeat at Liverpool.


Inamoto (thigh) and Gera (groin) are also back in full training after
lengthy spells on the sidelines.


"Clem took quite a bad knock to the head on Monday and the specialist has
advised us not to risk him," said Robson.


"Thomas Gaardsoe still has a hamstring injury.


"All the other players are available for selection at this moment in time.


"It will be good to have all the midfield players back because that's where
I felt we lost the game against Villa.


"We didn't have the freshness in the midfield area because of all the
injuries over the Christmas period.


"Ronnie's come through training okay today (Thursday), as did Zoltan and
Ina."

I wouldn't have thought we'd risk Zoltan going straight into the game, probably come on as sub 20 mins to go. So assumign Kanu and Kamara are still available I guess we should field a pretty strong team against the top team in the Championship.

Kanu Ellington
Greening Inamoto Wallwork Kamara

Extra ticket kiosks for Cup clash

ALBION have made alternative arrangements to make it easier for fans to
purchase tickets at Saturday's FA Cup clash with Reading (ko 3pm).


With the exception of tickets sold from the East Stand box office, tickets
bought on the day of the third-round tie will be pre-printed, meaning fans
will not be able to choose their seats.


Tickets will be available to buy at different kiosks around The Hawthorns
depending on which stand you wish to view the game from.


East Stand tickets should be purchased from the East Stand box office by
credit/debit card only and there will also be two kiosks adjacent to G Block
for cash-only sales.


Smethwick End cash-only tickets can be purchased from the matchday ticket
office in that stand.


Halfords Lane cash-only tickets can be purchased from two kiosks at the rear
of B Block.


Birmingham Road End cash-only tickets can be purchased from four kiosks on
Woodman Car Park.


Fans wishing to purchase a ticket in the Smethwick End, Halfords Lane and
Birmingham Road End stands using a credit/debit card can only do so from the
East Stand box office, where ticket collections can be made from as normal.

Robson takes one step at a time
BRYAN Robson is refusing to get carried away with the possibility of an FA
Cup derby date with his former Manchester United buddy Steve Bruce.

Monday's fourth-round draw paired the winners of the Baggies-Reading replay
at home to either Blues or Torquay.

But Robson insists Albion must overcome their tricky trip to runaway
Championship leaders Reading next Tuesday (ko 8pm) before they can even
start thinking about the next stage of the competition.

"You can only ask for a home tie and that's what we've got if we get
through," he said.

"If we can go down and get a good result at Reading, and Blues beat Torquay,
we could have a local derby on our hands, which would generate great
interest in the area.

"But we've got to get past Reading before we can even start thinking about
that."
