Hammer Grady Diangana pulled up with a hamstring strain after four minutes during West Brom’s crucial game with Stoke City. Kenneth Zohore came on in his place. The Baggies finished one nil losers this evening at home to the Potters.
Grady has arguably been Baggies player of the season so far but hadn’t featured for a month after suffering a similar hamstring injury in mid-December. He spent 27 days out of action only returning from injury on 11th January playing 20 minutes in 2-2 draw against Charlton.
This was his first start since his injury and he was due to play the full ninety minutes tonight.
Last week a report suggested that Slaven Bilic was about to offer David Moyes an extra £1.5m loan fee to keep Diangana for the remainder of the season with another potential £3m loan fee for next season.
West Brom remains top of the Championship table just one point ahead of second-placed Leeds with Fulham, Brentford, Nottingham Forrest and Swansea in the chasing pack
