Baggies seek to sink Swans

Midfielder Graham Dorrans is confident West Brom can give their Championship automatic promotion hopes a major fillip with victory over Swansea tonight.

Albion are seeking to become only the third team to beat Paulo Sousa's Swans since September and enhance their grip on second place in the standings behind Newcastle.

Dorrans said: "It's a tough place to go but hopefully we can go there and get a good result.

"A lot of teams have gone there and lost or dropped points so if we can go there and win the game it would be a great statement," added the 22-year-old Scot.

"Hopefully, we can do that -- and we've certainly got the players to do it."
