Preview: West Bromwich Albion vs. Norwich City

Sports Mole previews the Premier League clash between West Bromwich Albion and Norwich City.

West Bromwich Albion host Norwich City on Saturday afternoon looking to earn their first victory in five matches.

The Baggies have struggled in their last four fixtures, picking up just two points and conceding nine goals on the way to falling to 13th position in the Premier League table.

Head coach Steve Clarke could hand a start to Victor Anichebe, after the striker came off the bench to score in his side's 3-2 defeat to Manchester City in midweek.

Norwich are reeling from the 5-1 loss suffered at Anfield on Wednesday evening after being on the end of a four-goal performance from Luis Suarez.

Manager Chris Hughton is unlikely to shuffle his pack significantly for the visit to The Hawthorns, but he could recall striker Gary Hooper.
