West Brom: Karlan Grant an injury doubt for Blackburn clash

West Brom: Karlan Grant an injury doubt for Blackburn clash -West Bromwich Albion News

West Brom striker Karlan Grant is a doubt for his side’s Championship clash with Blackburn Rovers this weekend, according to reliable journalist Joe Chapman.

The Lowdown: West Brom visit Blackburn

The Baggies beat Sheffield United 1-0 in the EFL Cup first round on Thursday evening but attention now turns back to league action.

On Sunday afternoon, Steve Bruce’s side make the trip to Ewood Park to face Blackburn, as they look to go one better than their opening two draws this season and open their league account for the campaign.

With Daryl Dike already out of the game with a long-term thigh problem, West Brom have now suffered another big injury concern.

The Latest: Grant an injury doubt

Writing on Twitter, The Birmingham Mail‘s Chapman claimed that Grant could also miss out, with the Baggies ‘sweating’ over his availability:

“Albion are sweating on the availability of Karlan Grant at Blackburn. It’s the last position on the pitch they could do without a key man right now.”

Baggies fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 campaign?

The Verdict: Could be a huge blow

Grant has enjoyed a promising start to the season, scoring against both Watford and Sheffield United, so him missing out would be a massive blow for Bruce.

Should West Brom re-sign Clarke this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Without Dike around, the 24-year-old is West Brom’s most reliable source of goals, so to have neither available could leave them horribly short in the final third.

The hope is that Grant ends up being passed fit late in the day but this is far from an ideal situation so early in the season, at a time when the Baggies are trying to outline their promotion credentials.
