Bothroyd: Could play against Baggies

Bothroyd: Could play against Baggies

Carrying an injury-ravaged squad, Jones looked all set to turn to his youngsters for Saturday's FA Cup tie at Chelsea until striker Jay Bothroyd had an injection in his ankle and Gavin Rae voiced his intention to start despite a hamstring injury.

Combined with Darcy Blake's recovery from a back problem, Jones was able to send out a side that ran the FA Cup holders close before eventually going down 4-1.

But it remains to be seen whether Bothroyd and Rae will be able to handle two games in the space of four days.

To add to Jones' woes for the Championship clash at home to Albion, Stephen McPhail's season has been curtailed once again with the discovery he in fact cracked two ribs in last Tuesday's 2-0 win over Peterborough, ruling him out for around three to four weeks.

Defenders Mark Hudson (ankle) and Miguel Comminges (thigh), midfielder Joe Ledley (hips) and forwards Josh Magennis (broken fibula) and Kelvin Etuhu (ankle) already remain sidelined. But defender Tony Capaldi returns having been cup-tied at Stamford Bridge.
