A header by James Morrison in the 74th minute was the lone goal of the day as the Baggies earn three needed points on the road, defeating a struggling Spurs side 0-1.
Entering play, West Brom looked like one of the three early relegation candidates, having gone without a goal since opening day, but they took advantage Spurs lack of energy and attacking ideas to nick a goal in the latter stages of the match and grab a deserved win. The winner came from a Chris Brunt corner which Morrison headed home easily, completely unmarked. Some credit also needs to go to Joleon Lescott, who's presence in defense has perhaps given West Brom a vital piece to stay afloat in the league this season. Sep 21 - 10:31 AM

James Morrison faces a late fitness check in his bid to participate in West Brom's Saturday match against Spurs.

Pepe Mel indicated that Morrison would start against Spurs if he were passed fit. If Morrison is not able to go then Pepe Mel was fairly direct in saying that Chris Brunt would be his choice to deputize. Neither are particularly interesting choices this weekend no matter the certainty given the opposition and that they have only one match.

James Morrison assisted two of West Bromwich Albion's three goals today, but it was not enough to secure any points for the Baggies in a frustrating 4-3 loss to Aston Villa.

The wheels came off for Pepe Mel's side today after an early two goal advantage but Morrison was able to have a nice fantasy day, providing the two assists. With the 0-2 lead, their defense completely shut off for stretches as they conceded twice quickly. Then the currently under investigation striker Nicolas Anelka had to exit with an injury. Defender Diego Lugano was close to being sent off, first committing the foul in the box that led to the final goal, then continuing to commit hard challenges for the final half hour. West Brom remain stuck on 22 points, just three above the relegation zone as they get set to host Suarez and company this weekend.

West Brom midfielder James Morrison is a major doubt heading into Albion's next Premier League match against Fulham due to a groin injury.

The same injury suffered in the Baggies match against Swansea also left Morrison out of the Scotland national team during the international break. West Brom are still looking for their first goal of the season and Morrison is one of their more threatening players. While the additions of Sessegnon and Amalfitano should create more chances, this makes investment in a Fulham defender this weekend a viable option.
