CHRIS Hughton has revealed the injury and illness carnage accompanying Albion's FA Cup win against Derby.

Top scorer Glenn Murray was an unexpected absentee from the squad due to a calf issue.

Illness ruled out Davy Propper who, like Murray, would otherwise have been involved.

Lewis Dunk, with a knock, and Leon Balogun (shoulder) were also unavailable, which led to a first call-up to the bench for 19-year-old Norwegian defender Leo Ostigard.

Hughton said of Murray: "He just felt his calf very slightly, but certainly enough, the same with Dunky, for him not to be available.

"And then we will push as hard as we can to get them fit for the Leicester game (February 26).

"Glenn probably more so than Dunky would have been involved. I think Dan Burn has done very well in the games he has played.

"Davy was ill, trained (Friday) and then didn't feel great. We assessed him and he was definitely not well enough to play.

"It's unusual for us. Generally we've been good with injuries but it was a difficult week with Leon Balogun injured as well in training, his shoulder. Probably that makes the result even more pleasing."

Albion are awaiting the results of a scan on the left ankle injury which forced off Jurgen Locadia and could leave Hughton facing a striker crisis at Leicester, when Florin Andone completes a three-match ban.
