Morrison grateful for rest

West Bromwich Albion midfielder James Morrison expects to be fit enough to play in Sunday's crunch Premier League encounter at Fulham. The 22-year-old former Middlesbrough star has struggled with a hamstring problem recently and has started only three games since the turn of the year. The Baggies star was forced to withdraw from Scotland's get-together at St Andrew's earlier this month because of the problem but thinks Albion's recent four-day training camp in Spain has helped him. He said: "It's been a decent trip to Spain. The weather has been decent and the training's been good. "It's also helped to bond the lads together ahead of the run-in to the end of the season. "From my viewpoint, I've been able to take part in all the training sessions in Spain and I have had no problems. "Touch wood, I'm over the injuries and will be OK for Sunday."
