​Pardew gives update on West Brom's Livermore situation

West Brom boss Alan Pardew says Jake Livermore is doing fine after he was taunted by a West Ham fan over the death of his baby son.

Pardew says the midfielder is in line to play against Exeter City in the FA Cup on Saturday.

"Jake is OK and I will take him to Exeter. He was hurt by the situation but everyone has been very supportive."

Pardew added he expects Livermore to avoid a Football Association charge over the altercation at West Ham.
