Kaz will be flying again
Albion expect Kazenga Lualua to be flying in training on Monday – despite undergoing surgery in Germany this week.
The winger has had a metal plate removed from his ankle during the international break.
Now Gus Poyet wants to see him on form again in the build-up to Friday’s predicted sell-out at home to Sheffield Wednesday.
LuaLua went under the knife as soon as possible after his starring role in last Saturday’s 3-1 win at Burnley.
He had metalwork which was inserted after he broke his ankle at Hartlepool almost two years ago removed.
Poyet said: “He had a small metal plate in there and they recommend you get it taken out after a while.
“It only takes four or five days of procedure including rest so we decided to do it this week so he can come back to training on Monday “In pre-season he had a few days out of action, he got a kick at Lewes in the area of the plate.
“He has had things like that but nothing serious.
“He has had about three days to recover.
“We just need to make sure he is fully recovered for Monday.”
LuaLua started at Turf Moor after Craig Noone’s sudden departure for Cardiff.
However Will Buckley’s bright showing off the bench plus the arrival of wide players David Lopez and Andrea Orlandi mean competition on the wings is now red hot again.
Poyet added: “Kaz had his chance after Nooney left ad he did very well “But everyone was already seeing that during the week before the game.
“I hope there are no setbacks from this little what we would call intervention.”
Albion’s players return to work on Monday after a weekend off.
Goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak remained on the bench for Poland in their World Cup qualifier in Montenegro last night.
As expected, Przemyslaw Tyton got the nod in Podgorica.
Adam El-Abd and Egypt play Cameroon in a friendly in Alexandria on Tuesday.
