–Eagles star nursing hernia injury
By Johnny Edward:
Nigerian striker Victor Anichebe is a major doubt for Westbrom who host Everton at The Hawthorns on Saturday as the Nigeria international is battling a hernia problem.
The burly forward missed the Baggies training on Thursday but coach Alan Irvine is still hoping the 26-year old could play with the pain.
“The only people who didn’t actually train today were Youssouf and Victor Anichebe, who’s had a hernia issue. I’m still not ruling him out; he’s been training with the medical people.”
Irvine added: “Nobody is ruled out through injury, in terms of lack of match fitness, there’s nobody ruled out – but there are some who are less likely to be involved than others.”
It remains to be seen if Anichebe will undergo surgery to fix a troublesome hernia problem.
Anichebe who scored three goals in 24 appearances for Westbrom last season is yet to open his goal account this season after two EPL games.
Westbrom are yet to win a game after three matches and are 18th on the EPL log.
