Dorrans eyes regular starts

The 24-year-old had missed the final 10 games of last season after
suffering an ankle injury in training at the start of March. The
Scotland international has already played in the Carling Cup and
made two league appearances from the bench this season, but
Sunday’s game at Norwich marked his first Premier League start for
the Baggies since a 1-1 draw with Stoke in February. Dorrans is
delighted to have finally made it back onto the pitch and is now
bidding to keep hold of his place in the Baggies starting XI. “I
haven’t had many minutes this season but hopefully I’ve got myself
fit and I can stay in the side,” Dorrans told the club’s official
website. “I had a bad injury and I’m still working on that to get
it stronger. I need to get myself that little bit fitter and that
little bit sharper. “But it was my first game back in the Premier
League so hopefully I can keep improving and getting fitter and get
90 minutes in. “You only get match fit by playing matches and
that’s what I want to do. “I think I did okay at Norwich but there
is a lot of competition for places and everyone will be chomping at
the bit to get back in. “But hopefully I’ve done enough to keep my
place.”
