ALBION boss Graham Potter has admitted that players need to be able to play in more than one position.

The manager is currently dealing with an injury crisis as Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster and Jeremy Sarmiento are all out injured as well as three to four players who have tested positive for Covid-19.

Other players such as Danny Welbeck, Steven Alzate and Adam Lallana are still rebuilding their fitness after recovering from their own injuries and are not ready to start a match yet.

To cope with this problem Potter has resorted to using some players out of position, one example of this is Joel Veltman moving into a centre back position despite traditionally being a right back.

Potter told the media: "We’re probably used to players playing in slightly different positions and I’ve always thought that if you’ve got injuries or problems.

"It’s not about complaining about them, they are what they are, you have to use your creativity within the group, look for a different solution."

Potter will look for a creative looking defensive partnership against Wolves due to the absence of captain Dunk and Shane Duffy, who is suspended.

He said: "We haven’t got another Lewis Dunk or Shane Duffy, in terms of attributes, but we can possibly use players in a creative way to help us do the same things.

"To have an organisation defensively, to have a clarity in terms of where we’re pressing or defending."
