Everton boss David Moyes hopes the return of injury-plagued Victor Anichebe can help solve his team's goalscoring problems.
The 22-year-old is back in contention for the first time this season after overcoming a knee injury - the latest in a series of problems - suffered during the summer.
Anichebe scored for the reserves in the `mini derby' against Liverpool in midweek and could now feature as West Brom visit Goodison Park in Barclays Premier League. His availability increases Moyes' options as he looks to remedy the problem of the Toffees' misfiring front line.
Only two of Everton's goals - one each from Ayegbeni Yakubu and Jermaine Beckford - have come from strikers in 14 league games this term.
Moyes said: "Victor got a game in the reserves, which was good. It's good to get him back in the fold, he is an important player for us. If we can get him back fit he can do a job for us.
"He has not played much football recently but he gives us other options we have not had. He did really well in pre-season and he was going to give us something different to have around the team."
