Brunt to skipper Baggies

Chris Brunt will again skipper West Brom for Saturday's FA Cup fifth-round tie with West Ham at The Hawthorns with Darren Fletcher cup tied.

Following his deadline day arrival from Manchester United, Fletcher took over the captain's armband from Brunt for Albion's two Barclays Premier League games over the past week.

Striker Victor Anichebe is a doubt with a groin strain, whilst midfielder Callum McManaman may only figure on the bench after picking up a knock in midweek but goalkeeper Boaz Myhill may play after recently recovering from a finger injury and midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu is available after the African Nations Cup.

The Baggies have already lost 2-1 at home to Sam Allardyce's side in the league this season.

But striker Brown Ideye has urged thjem to build on their midweek win over Swansea which took them four points clear of the drop zone.

"We have to look at it like a Premier League game. West Ham came here and you know what happened and they are a good side," said the 26-year-old.

"This result will lift our morale and we just have to keep on playing like we did today."

West Ham will be without striker Andy Carroll, who is set to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

But goalkeeper Adrian is available after his red card against Southampton in midweek was overturned by the FA.

During his press conference to preview the game, boss Sam Allardyce was handed a copy of the dossier distributed by Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal on Tuesday.

The Dutchman reacted to Allardyce labelling the Red Devils as 'long-ball United' after van Gaal's side scored a last-gasp equaliser at Upton Park last Sunday.

The four-page pamphlet highlighted statistics which van Gaal used to refute suggestions United have reverted into a direct, long-ball team but Allardyce responded nonchalantly when handed the paperwork - refusing to allow the spat to linger.

"I shall have a look when I get the opportunity," he said.

"I don't think there is any point in me going into again. It is what it is, he has made of it what he has made of it, I said what I saw on the day and it has moved on.

"We have played another game in the Premier League since then and our focus is now on the FA Cup and progressing to the next round."

Brown Ideye scores twice as West Brom reach FA Cup quarterfinals

Reinvigorated striker Brown Ideye inspired West Brom to a 4-0 FA Cup romp against West Ham as the Baggies reached the quarterfinals in style.

The striker bagged two as he continued his remarkable return to form under head coach Tony Pulis.

James Morrison and Saido Berahino also scored while former Albion loanee Morgan Amalfitano was sent off for the Hammers just 10 minutes after coming on.

Ideye, a 10 million pound record buy, was set to leave the Baggies on deadline day for Qatari club Al Gharafa but stayed because they failed to land Carlton Cole from the Hammers.

Cole stayed at Upton Park after their move for Tottenham's Emmanuel Adebayor broke down and since then Ideye has scored four goals in three games.

Ideye and Berahino started as their blossoming partnership continued while Craig Gardner replaced the cup-tied Darren Fletcher and Stephane Sessegnon came in for Callum McManaman.

Kevin Nolan and Mark Noble returned for the Hammers with ex-Baggies target Cole on the bench.

After an even opening Ryan Cresswell fired a free-kick over but the Baggies took control and deservedly opened the scoring on 20 minutes.

Craig Dawson won Gardner's crossfield ball ahead of Cresswell to break down the right and, with Ideye free in the centre, found the striker who converted from five yards.

The Nigeria international has admitted he feels reborn under Pulis and he had the Hammers in trouble again soon after, going down under Nolan's challenge in the area with replays suggesting it was a penalty.

Albion were dominant and Sessegnon blazed over but Gardner almost scored in spectacular style eight minutes before the break.

The midfielder collected the ball 35 yards from goal and unleashed a fierce drive which crashed off Adrian's bar.

Gareth McAuley lashed the rebound over but the Baggies did not have long to wait before doubling their lead.

They had been on top since scoring and grabbed a deserved second when Morrison rode Noble's challenge and lashed into the corner from 25 yards.

A third then arrived on 57 minutes from Ideye when he nodded in Sessegnon's cross from six yards.

The Hammers had offered little but Ben Foster had to save well from Diafra Sakho's header, with McAuley then clearing off the line on 65 minutes.

But West Ham imploded with 20 minutes left when Amalfitano - who was on loan at West Brom last season - was sent off just 10 minutes after replacing Nolan.

He was initially booked for a foul on Chris Brunt but reacted by pushing the midfielder in the face to receive a straight red.

Then, barely two minutes later, Berahino rifled in from a tight angle to spark a mass exodus of the travelling West Ham fans.

They had jeered Sam Allardyce's substitutions and also briefly abused the manager in the second half.

Adrian then saved well from Ideye's flick late on to deny the striker as the Baggies cruised through.
