West Brom management delighted with Dorrans form
A switch to a 4-4-2 formation forced Dorrans on to the bench against Sunderland after six straight starts last week.
"Graham would probably be the first to say his ideal position is more central and he's played in wider positions in most of this campaign, but he is a talented player," said joint-assistant boss Downing.
"We saw the best of him two or three years ago in the Championship and he's had one or two niggling ankle injuries. But when he's fit and well Graham is a very talented player and is a person who can create and score a goal from the midfield area."
