West Brom: Karlan Grant could miss Burnley showdown

West Brom: Karlan Grant could miss Burnley showdown -Championship News

West Brom striker Karlan Grant is an injury doubt for his side’s crucial Championship clash with Burnley later this week, according to journalist Joe Chapman.

The Lowdown: West Brom prepare for huge game

Carlos Corberan’s side face Chesterfield in an FA Cup third round replay on Tuesday night but a bigger match lies ahead on Friday evening.

The Baggies make the trip to Turf Moor to take on top-of-the-table Burnley, in what will be a major test of their Championship promotion credentials.

Grant is out injured currently, however, and a worrying update has emerged.

The Latest: Grant an injury doubt

Writing on Twitter, Chapman claimed that the 25-year-old could potentially miss out on one of the biggest games of the season so far:

“Grant struggling to make Friday as it stands.”

The Verdict: Potential massive blow

Not having Grant available against Burnley would be a big blow, considering the Englishman has scored three league goals this season and 24 in total for West Brom. He has also been hailed as ‘excellent’ by Danny Cowley in the past.

He has become an experienced player who can deliver end product at important times, and while he wouldn’t necessarily be nailed-on to start, he would be a strong option in attack.

The hope is that Grant ends up being fit on Friday, possibly being used as an impact substitute who can deliver an influential cameo, if required.
