West Brom defender targets second comeback against West Ham

Jonas Olsson has been sidelined since January with a knee complaint but has since returned to full training. The Swedish defender, who West Brom signed from NEC Nijmegen, is now eyeing a repeat of his Baggies bow - a 3-2 win over the Hammers last September - when they head to Upton Park next Monday.

He told the club's official website: "I did my first full session last Monday. I've carried on from there and my knee feels good.

"Up until now I've been pretty lucky with injuries throughout my career and hopefully that remains the case after this.

"I should be fit for the West Ham game. Hopefully it will be another win as well.

"West Ham was my first game for West Brom and in some ways playing against them again after so long out will feel like another debut."
