ALBION manager Graham Potter has confirmed that "three or four" of his players have tested positive for Covid-19.

The team are due to play against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday night in the Premier League, but will be without the players who have tested positive.

Albion's last match against Tottenham Hotspur was postponed due to an outbreak in the North London side.

Potter told the media: "It was a fairly obvious one in terms of the seriousness of the outbreak at Tottenham and once you hear that, it is about the safety and health of the players and people there.

"Supporting that decision to postpone the game and we have just been preparing for Wolves.

"We are without nine players for the Wolves match with injuries and a bit of Covid-19 ourselves.

"We are around three or four at the moment but it is something we have to deal with and make sure it is at that number.

"It is a test at the moment in terms of that but there are opportunities for other players."

Albion are already without some players for the match against Wolves due to injuries to players such as Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster and Jeremy Sarmiento.

Shane Duffy will also miss the game due to suspension.

However, there have not been talks about postponing the Wolves match.

Potter said: "We have not spoken about that at all (postponing the Wolves match).

"I think everyone is in the same position in terms of trying to monitor it and not playing games with guys with Covid-19.

"Obviously there is a health issue there and there is also the risk of spreading it to other teams, so we have to do what we can and keep testing and making sure we can keep the number as low as possible.

"We had some tests today and we will see how we go and make a decision whether we have to do another one tomorrow, I think that is normal at the moment.

"We just want to make sure there is not a spread or it is not more serious than it already is."
