Carlos Corberán has been given a boost to his matchday squad for this weekend’s Sky Bet Championship game against Birmingham City (ko 3pm).

Albion host Blues at The Hawthorns on Saturday as they turn their attention back to the league campaign.

And the boss revealed the number of players available to him has increased - with Daryl Dike returning from a knock and all three of his January additions being available to feature.

“It’s been a good recovery from Dike,” explained Carlos. “He is progressing well and trained today and yesterday with the team. It means he is going to be one of the options available.

“From the previous game, everyone else that was available will be available.

“And for Saturday, I have the players who were cup-tied, too, like Andi Weimann and Callum Marshall. Plus Mikey Johnston, who we brought in yesterday.

“I also have the positive news that Adam Reach is progressing well, and maybe in around 10 days or two weeks, he will be with the group.”

On the clash itself, Corberán said he and the team are looking forward to another important afternoon in B71.

“Birmingham is another derby, so it is a special game for us and our fans,” he added.

“Tony Mowbray has immediately changed the momentum of the team, and it means that tomorrow we are going to play in a very competitive game.

“After the last defeat in the league at Norwich, and in the cup, we want to change our own momentum, we want to win, and we want to recover that feeling.”
