West Brom: Joe Masi drops Daryl Dike update

West Brom have struggled at times this season when it comes to finding the net, with just 37 goals scored in 35 games, which is lower than the majority of clubs in the Championship.

With the Baggies set to take on promotion-chasing Huddersfield Town tonight at The Hawthorns, Steve Bruce will undoubtedly be hoping that his side can follow up their win against Hull City last weekend with another victory this time around.

Which La Liga club did West Brom sign Okay Yokuslu on loan from in the 2021 January transfer window?

In terms of their lacklustre form in front of goal, it seems as though Albion could be set to welcome back a player who could well hold the key to finally addressing this shortcoming.

What’s the news?

According to a recent update on Twitter from Joe Masi, Bruce revealed in his latest press conference that West Brom striker Daryl Dike has finally returned to training, having picked up a hamstring injury only a few weeks after arriving at the club in January from Orlando City.

Bruce will be delighted

Having scored 28 goals in 63 appearances for his previous club and Barnsley, the 21-year-old certainly has what it takes to become a regular goal threat for the Baggies if he is able to maintain his fitness for the rest of the campaign and get into the rhythm of how the team plays.

While it will probably be too early for the American to get back into action tonight against the Terriers, Bruce will still be delighted to have him in training and getting closer to making a full return.

Are you excited to see Daryl Dike back in action?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With only two appearances for his new club before picking up his injury, the £9m-rated striker will also be desperate to get back out on the pitch so he can show the Albion faithful what he’s made of and why the club chose to sign him in the January transfer window.

If Dike can get back to full fitness in the coming days and start getting some regular minutes on the pitch, he could be a big player for the Baggies and help them end the campaign on a high note if he is able to start scoring regularly for them, which would be a massive boost for everyone at The Hawthorns.

Given how Andy Carroll has not scored a goal in seven league appearances for the Midlands club since his arrival in January, Dike may not have too much trouble when it comes to getting back in the side.
