West Brom live updates
West Brom striker Shane Long praised 27-year old referee Robert Madley after he sent off three players in the match between the Baggies and Southampton.
The Yorkshireman sent off Danny Fox for a two-footed lunge after earlier showing red cards to Gaston Ramirez and Marc-Antoine Fortune.
– West Brom striker Shane Long.
I got an elbow to the face. I don't know if it was deliberate or not but he caught me straight on the chin.
I think the ref got a good view of it and I was on the ground so I didn't get a view of the second one.
The third one was a two-footed challenge so I think we can say it was a good day's work for the ref.
West Brom manager Steve Clarke has confirmed captain Chris Brunt will miss this weekend's clash with Southampton due to a knee injury.
– West Brom manager Steve Clarke.
Chris' injury is a little bit of a concern for us.
But fingers crossed the medical department will do the job they've done all season and get him back quickly.
It would be nice to think he'll only miss one game but there is a possibility he will miss more than one game.
Following a disastrous first season at Eastlands Scott Sinclair would like to go out on loan next season in order to get some match action, say the Daily Mirror. This news has been noticed by the West Brom management, who could be interested in offering the winger a route out, claim the Express.
