Roy Hodgson believes West Brom are beginning to see the best of midfielder Graham Dorrans and admits it is like having "a new player" at his disposal.

Dorrans has been dogged by injury problems since Hodgson took charge at the Hawthorns nearly 12 months ago, most notably a long-term ankle setback suffered in training.

But the Scottish international is now fit and has made the most of opportunities opened up to him by injuries to Youssouf Mulumbu, Chris Brunt and Paul Scharner in recent weeks, and Albion head coach Hodgson said: "It's good to see that Graham Dorrans is getting better match by match."
