Ashton Out of Spurs Game

Dean Ashton, who was replaced in yesterday's game after falling awkwardly in an aerial challenge with Albion's Curtis Davies, is out of Sunday's game. Alan Pardew, speaking after the win against the Baggies reports that,

"He felt a twinge in his hamstring and that could be anything. Potentially, he could be doubtful for the FA Cup final. After being without Hayden Mullins, that would be a big blow because we just can't afford to lose any more of our big players and Deano certainly fits into that category.

He's our biggest worry now, he certainly won't be available for Sunday's game against Tottenham Hotspur, and that will now give somebody else a chance up front."

Pardew also hinted that he would not be playing a full strength squad against Spurs because a number of other players have minor injuries.
