Morrison stays on schedule

West Brom midfielder James Morrison is confident he will have overcome a groin injury in time to play in the crunch Premier League game against Fulham later this month. The problem forced Morrison to pull out of the Scotland squad's training get-together this week, but he is pleased with the way his recovery is going. He said: "I had to have an injection in my groin ten minutes before kick-off to be able to play against Newcastle on Saturday. I've never had to have one before in order to play a game. "To be honest, I hope I never have to have one again because it really hurt. I should be okay for the Fulham game though without an injection. "At the moment I'm just working in the gym because I can't train on the surface at the indoor pitch, where the rest of the players are training. "We can't keep letting mistakes happen. But we'll stick together and keep working hard. We've just got to move on now. "I reckon we may need six more wins to stay up so we'll need to win one or two away. It's possible looking at our remaining fixtures. "It's not nice being where we are and we don't want to be in the Championship next season. The Premier League is the best league in the world and we're all working hard to try and stay in it."
