Scharner will fight for West Brom spot - Appleton

West Bromwich Albion assistant manager Michael Appleton is confident that Paul Scharner will do everything in his power to reclaim his spot in the first team.

The Austrian midfielder has been omitted from the Baggies' past two matches as manager Roy Hodgson prefers Graham Dorrans but Appleton says that Scharner will soon be back in action.

"I have definitely seen a positive reaction. Paul is what he is, he's a character and he's got a lot to say for himself at times, but not in a bad way," he told Express & Star.

"He thinks about his football and cares about his football and you only have to look at him physically to know that he looks after himself.

"I expect him to carry on with the reaction he has given straight away."
