Graham Potter hopes his injury luck will turn after losing two more players at Newcastle.

Albion start planning today for their Carabao Cup tie against Aston Villa.

Potter will have a few players to check on ahead of Wednesday’s third round tie at the Amex.

He will also have Saturday’s Premier League trip to Chelsea in mind.

Glenn Murray remained on the bench in the 0-0 draw at Newcastle and Solly March was not involved.

Bernardo, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and longer-term absentee Leandro Trossard were also still out.

Potter said: “Glenn rolled his ankle (on Friday) in a little contact with Bongy (Gaeten Bong).

“He felt that 20 minutes was the max for him but, just how the game was, I didn’t want to throw him into that and do further damage.

“Hopefully that should be okay for the weekend – maybe Wednesday, we will see.

“Solly just had a tightness really after the game against Burnley.

“Hopefully he can be ready for the weekend.

“Leo is making good progress, so is Alireza.

“We are hopeful that Berny (Bernardo) may be out on the pitch next week.

“We have just had a little bit of a period were it never rains but it pours.

“But that gives opportunities as well and you can see there is a good group.”

Yves Bissouma looks a candidate to start against Villa after coming off the bench at Newcastle for his first playing time since summer surgery on a long-standing shoulder problem.

Potter said: “I’ve been focusing on Newcastle but we will see how the dust settles, so to speak, and then we will select a team that can be competitive and try and win the game.”
