West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Bruce has delivered an injury update on the situation of striker Callum Robinson.
The Lowdown: Robinson’s injury concern
The Baggies kicked off their new Championship season with a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium last weekend, but were without the services of the 27-year-old.
The Republic of Ireland international was forced off the pitch after sustaining an injury during his side’s pre-season friendly with Northampton Town last month, and has not featured since, causing concern surrounding his fitness.
The Latest: Bruce’s fitness update
Speaking after the game vs Boro (as quoted by the Express and Star), Bruce shared an update for West Brom fans on Robison’s current injury latest. He said:
“He took a knock against Northampton and he’s still a while off. It’s nothing serious, he’s been scanned, but it’s obviously enough to keep him out for a couple of weeks.”
The Verdict: Time to cash in
Robinson has already been the subject of plenty of transfer speculation in recent weeks, with a move away from the Hawthorns consistently talked about after suffering a lack of game time.
Should West Brom sell Robinson?
The injury coming into play, mixed with the fact that he was out of favour before being ruled out of action, will only push him even further down the pecking order upon his return to fitness, so the Baggies should consider cashing in and letting him leave the Midlands in the coming weeks.
