Mowbray's Morrison relief
14 Nov 2007 - 11:04:59
West Brom boss Tony Mowbray has confirmed that James Morrison could be sidelined for up to six weeks but is relieved the injury is not as serious as was initially feared.
The midfielder twisted his knee during Monday's 4-0 win at Coventry City and there were concerns he had suffered cruciate damage, which would have meant at least six months on the sidelines.
But Mowbray said: "James has had his scan and the radiographer's initial prognosis is that he's suffered medial ligament damage.
"We're looking at a timescale as we suggested on Monday, which is a month to six weeks."
Meanwhile, centre-back Martin Albrechtsen has had his knee operation and should also be ready to return to first-team action within six weeks.
