Three Albion players are doubts for Monday night's trip to Leicester City, Baggies boss Tony Pulis has revealed.

Hal Robson-Kanu, James Morrison, and Nacer Chadli will all be assessed over the weekend.

Robson-Kanu and Morrison picked up muscle strains on international duty for Wales and Scotland respectively, and Chadli is undergoing a pre-planned injection on his back.

He's expected to be back in training on Saturday morning and Pulis is hoping the Monday night kick-off will play into his hands with all three players.

"We've got one or two (doubts)," said Pulis. "Hal Robson-Kanu has got a little bit of a strain, we're concerned about him.

"Moz hurt his calf muscles and there's a worry about him as well so we've got one or two little niggles that we have to be careful with.

"We're not sure how they're going to be, whether they'll be missing Leicester.

"It might be the case that the two days extra help us, we're not sure. But they're the two big concerns at the moment."

Chadli is seeing a specialist in Germany he has used before after playing 90 minutes for Belgium on Tuesday but it's understood the injection is part of his ongoing care and not a result of that game.


"Chads has stayed away and he's having an injection in his back," confirmed Pulis. "He's got a little bit of stiffness and I think he's gone to some fella in Germany who he's used before and he's actually been able to loosen it up.

"The doc is happy for him to have the injection. We won't see Chadli until Saturday morning so when he comes back we'll have a look, we'll assess it.

"I think he could play but it's just what state he's going to be in. It would be lovely to have him in the team, but unfortunately we've not been able to do that."
