West Brom dealt Callum Robinson injury blow

West Bromwich Albion have been dealt an injury blow ahead of their upcoming Championship fixture.

What’s the latest?

In a statement posted on the West Brom Twitter account, Albion revealed that Callum Robinson will be unavailable for selection for the club’s trip to Peterborough United on Saturday evening, as he is currently self-isolating after falling ill.

Further reports claim that the forward will also be ruled out of the Republic of Ireland’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Portugal and Azerbaijan, and may also miss the fixture against Serbia, depending on the speed of his recovery.

Ismael will be gutted

Considering just how impressive Robinson has been for West Brom so far this season, the fact the 26-year-old will miss the club’s clash with Peterborough United is sure to have left Valerien Ismael gutted.

Indeed, over his four Championship appearances so far this term, the £5.4m-rated man has scored three goals, registered one assist and created one big chance for his teammates, as well as taking an average of three shots and making one key pass per game.

These returns have seen the forward average a rather remarkable SofaScore match rating of 7.42, ranking him as the Frenchman’s third-best performer in the second tier of English football.

As such, it is undeniable that Robinson will be a big miss on Saturday, although, with Albion having recently signed Jordan Hugill from Norwich City on a season-long loan deal, perhaps the former Sheffield United man’s absence will present Ismael with the opportunity to hand the centre-forward his West Brom debut.

Furthermore, with an international break following Saturday’s fixture, Robinson could well be in line for a return to the starting XI for the visit of Millwall on September 11, all being well with his recovery.

However, despite the positives, Ismael will nevertheless have to make do without Robinson for the Posh game, something that will undoubtedly cause a blow to Albion’s chances of securing a positive result from the fixture.
