Football - Anelka back for Baggies

West Brom striker Nicolas Anelka is available again for Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with Swansea at The Hawthorns after missing the last two games while on compassionate leave.

PA Sport Report

Anelka's return is timely as head coach Steve Clarke is without Matej Vydra, who sustained a hamstring injury in the 3-0 Capital One Cup win over Newport on Tuesday.

With goalkeeper Ben Foster out for 12 weeks with a stress fracture of a bone in his right foot, Boaz Myhill should start despite a wrist injury. Midfielders Zoltan Gera, George Thorne (both knee) and Steven Reid (knock) remain sidelined.
