Shan offers injury update

James Shan expects to have Craig Dawson and Mason Holgate available for Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship game at Brentford.

The defensive duo were both substituted in the second half during Albion’s midweek win over Swansea.

But Shan is hopeful they’ll be ready to face the Bees at Griffin Park (ko 3pm), and also offered an update on Matt Phillips, Tosin Adarabioyo and Kieran Gibbs after all three missed out on Wednesday evening.

“Both of them (Dawson and Holgate) will be fine and available,” he said. 

“Craig was much better yesterday (Thursday). They’ll both be reviewed again today, but I’m imagining after reports from my medical team, they’ll be okay.

“Matty still has some ankle soreness. Again, I’ll have a further update on him.

“Tosin, with his hamstring, won’t be available.

“And as we spoke about previously, Kieran Gibbs is looking more so at the international break to get some training back under his belt.”
