West Brom injury update | Steven Reid and Jerome Thomas ruled out for Sunday

'Woy for England?

West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson held his pre-match press conference ahead of his side's Sunday tie versus Manchester United. During it, the biggest news that he revealed was that Steven Reid will miss the rest of the regular season. Here is what 'Woy had to say about the former Ireland international:

"It's a major blow to lose Steven. He's done so well at the club since I came here just over a year ago. He's been outstanding. It's not the same injury he suffered at Newcastle. It's the same ankle but this time it's an internal ligament rather than an external ligament."

In addition to Reid, backup goalkeeper Marton Fulop and midfielder Jerome Thomas have been ruled out for Sunday. However, Billy Jones could be fit the tie. Here is what the Baggies boss had to say about these three players:

"Marton has unfortunately gone down with chicken pox," said head coach Roy Hodgson. He's in an infectious stage at the moment so he can't come anywhere near the club. He's ruled out of Sunday and we'll probably be quite lucky if he gets over it in time for next Saturday - but that's not for certain. Under normal circumstances I think they work on a couple of weeks. Luke Daniels will replace him. Jerome Thomas isn't fit, while Billy Jones has made good progress and he's closer to being fit now."

Zoltan Gera is out for the season due to an ACL injury and Paul Scharner's availability is in question because of a rib injury.
