Emerging Injury Update: West Brom Hit with a Double Blow

West Bromwich Albion fans will be rejoicing at the news that two of their key players, Alex Palmer and Kyle Bartley, are expected to return from their respective injuries towards the end of March. The duo have been out of action for some time, with Palmer not appearing for West Brom since last month, while Bartley has been out since November.

The return of Palmer and Bartley will undoubtedly add depth and experience to Carlos Corberan’s squad, as the West Brom manager looks to push his team into the playoff places in the Championship. Palmer has been a regular starter this season, impressing with his performances between the sticks, while Bartley’s longevity and nous in defence could prove to be vital in the promotion battle.

Although Dara O’Shea and Erik Pieters have deputised relatively well at centre-back in Bartley’s absence, conceding three goals in their recent game against Watford does highlight the need for the experienced defender’s return. Bartley has made over 200 Championship appearances in his career, and his presence will be a huge boost to West Brom’s playoff chances.

West Brom fans will be hoping that both Palmer and Bartley can return to full fitness sooner rather than later, with some important fixtures coming up in the next few weeks. The return of two of their key players could prove to be the difference between a promotion push and a mid-table finish.
