West Brom boss Roy Hodgson is sweating on the fitness of key quartet Shane Long, Peter Odemwingie, Paul Scharner and Graham Dorrans ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash with Tottenham.

Striker Long, who returned from a month out with a knee problem to score the winner in the 2-1 victory over Bolton four days ago, suffered a leg injury in training on Tuesday

On the injury, Hodgson told West Brom's official website, "Shane took a knock [on Tuesday] morning so we're waiting to hear. When you've been out for a month, played 90 minutes and then you train, then quite often something else happens."
