DAVY Propper is likely to miss the rest of Albion's relegation fight.

The Dutch midfielder sits out Newcastle's visit tomorrow (5.30pm) with a hamstring injury sustained early on at Wolves last Saturday.

It sidelined him from the late defeat at Tottenham on Tuesday and is also expected to rule him out of the last two games away to Arsenal and at home to Manchester City.

Manager Chris Hughton told The Argus: "There is a slight chance that we will have him back before the end of the season but I think it will be touch and go.

"It is (a blow). At this moment I suppose the plus is that he is the only that's injured but he's an important player for us, one that has generally played.

"We got our heads around it once he'd had the injury and even before the scan. We knew it was a hamstring and it was just about how long it would take.

"So I think we've got our heads around the fact that he would be missing a few games. That has worked out to be the case.

"Possibly for that last game of the season there's a chance we might have him back but that we don't know yet."

Beram Kayal or Yves Bissouma will deputise against Newcastle.
