West Brom head coach Roberto Di Matteo is hopeful of having three of his key players fit for Saturday's clash with Plymouth. The Italian is optimistic Chris Brunt, Chris Wood and Luke Moore will all be healthy enough to line up against Paul Sturrock's men after injury. Brunt has been laid low with a calf strain but could test it out for Northern Ireland on Wednesday night while Wood and Moore (both ankle) are to return to training before Saturday. "Chris Brunt trained with us at the end of last week," Di Matteo told his side's official website. "They (Northern Ireland) called him up as he's an important player and it's up to their manager if he's involved. "I'm hoping Chris Wood will be fine and I'm expecting Luke to be training this week."
