West Brom will need to pick up three points at Swansea City on Monday afternoon and hope other results go their way in order to secure a place in the Championship’s top six.

Just three points sit between Coventry City in fifth and Blackburn Rovers in ninth, with a number of permutations on the cards on the final day. Swansea are five points adrift of the top six in 10th as West Brom sit two points behind sixth-placed Millwall.

Ahead of the Baggies’ trip to Wales, here’s how both sides are shaping up on the injury front.

West Brom

Carlos Corberan’s side were last in action against Norwich City on April 29, winning 2-1. There are no fresh injury concerns, with Corberan using the last week to give some players a rest.

Nathaniel Chalobah will be absent, while a call on Tom Rogic is set to be made ahead of the game after he missed last week’s win over Norwich.

Corberan said: “Rogic has started to work now with the physical coaches in the pitch and we still need to see how he progress. It’s a long week and closer to the game we will know his possibilities. Chalobah is in the same process as he was, so he cannot make the step to the football pitch yet.”

Daryl Dike has undergone surgery on a ruptured Achilles and will not be available to face Swansea as he faces a long spell on the sidelines.

Corberan added: “Now he is at home, making a recovery, and everything is fine, but he will of course need resilience and a strong mentality because as we know it’s one injury which is long term. He has given the first step, which is the surgery. Now starts the process of recovery, and it’s a long one.”

Swansea City

Swansea boss Russell Martin has no fresh injury concerns but will remain without injured midfield duo Liam Walsh and Jay Fulton. Joe Allen will serve the final game of a three-match ban while goalkeeper Steven Benda is a long-term absentee.

Martin said: “We are in the same situation as we were at Hull last weekend. Walshy and Jay miss out, they will not go away and get ready for pre-season when they will be totally fine and ready. We know we can finish in the top 10, and to do that we need a win, so that will be the aim.”
