ALBION manager Graham Potter has played down injury fears ahead of the weekend's match against Southampton.

Three Albion players will miss the game after picking up injuries against West Ham last night.

Adam Webster, Adam Lallana and Jeremy Sarmiento all picked up injuries and needed to be substituted in order to receive treatment.

However, fans can rest easy as the boss has played down concerns that the squad would not be able to deal with the added strain, suggesting that he is prepared to call upon some of the younger players at the club.

Potter has hinted that Aaron Connolly could make his return to the matchday squad following the injury to Lallana.

Potter said: "We were hoping to get some minutes into him with the under 23s, but it looks like he will be with the group come the weekend.

"We are still in the process of checking on everyone and recovering.

"We will make some decisions tomorrow - if we need some of the under-23s then, of course, we will use them.

"but at the moment, it doesn't look like we will need to.”
