The Press Association: Baggies sweat on Odemwingie
West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie is continuing to battle an ankle injury ahead of the crunch Barclays Premier League clash with Blackpool on Saturday.

The Baggies will attempt to end a six-match losing streak at The Hawthorns this weekend but they may have to do so without their leading scorer. Odemwingie needed an injection ahead of West Brom's last league game against Fulham eight days ago and missed the 1-0 FA Cup defeat by Reading last weekend, and he has not trained this week.

Boss Roberto Di Matteo told "Peter twisted his ankle so he is not training and we will have to see how he develops this week. He played with an injection in the Fulham game, with credit to him."

...West Brom could also be without Ishmael Miller and Pablo Ibanez, who both have hamstring problems, while Jonas Olsson will serve a one-match ban.

This game seems like a high-scoring one, and without Odemwingie the Baggies may turn to Tchoyi (listed as a midfielder) to play center forward.
