When Jonny Evans went down with a hamstring strain against Swansea in Week 24, Tony Pulis chose to use Craig Gardner rather than James Chester despite Chester being the only recognized center back on the bench.
Things have gone horribly wrong for James Chester since his arrival at the Hawthorns over the summer. Acquiring Chester wasn't cheap but given Tony Pulis' penchant for starting three or even four center backs across the back line, it was easy to see a path to Chester getting significant playing time even after Jonny Evans was also acquired. Since then though, Chester has apparently fallen further and further down the pecking order at the Hawthorns to the point where he isn't even getting the call when he's the only center back available. Expect a summer move away. Feb 5 - 1:52 PM
