Albion suffer Brunt blow

And latest on Yacob, Reid, Jones and Lugano injuries

ALBION have been dealt a blow with Chris Brunt being ruled out for five to six weeks due to a knee injury.

The Baggies skipper was forced off in the 65th minute of Saturday’s game with Manchester United after suffering medial ligament damage.

Claudio Yacob (tight hamstring) and Steven Reid (knee) are doubts for Saturday’s trip to Swansea after both also limping off against United.

Meanwhile, Billy Jones is making good progress in his recovery from the hamstring tear he picked up in the 1-1 draw with Fulham 17 days ago.

But Diego Lugano will be sidelined for three to four weeks due to the medial ligament damage he suffered on international duty with Uruguay last week.
