West Brom confirm key player fresh injury blow after Rotherham clash

West Brom captain Jed Wallace showcased a successful return from his shoulder troubles in Tuesday night’s 2-0 victory against Rotherham, scoring the second goal with a free kick. Wallace, who missed two games due to his shoulder injury sustained against Cardiff City, defied expectations of a three-week absence and made a significant impact in his comeback.

His third goal of the season secured the win for West Brom, helping them bounce back from consecutive defeats to Leicester City and Sunderland. Looking ahead to the upcoming match against Stoke City at The Hawthorns on Sunday, Wallace is likely to feature prominently under manager Carlos Corberan and could potentially return to the starting XI.

Reflecting on his recent performance, Wallace jokingly mentioned that his shoulder strapping may have contributed to the successful free-kick, and he expressed satisfaction with his quick recovery. Despite the physical demands, he conveyed his joy at being back on the pitch, emphasizing his love for playing football and representing the club.

Wallace acknowledged the challenges faced by the team in recent defeats but highlighted their impressive response against Rotherham, a team that has secured points against strong opponents this season. He credited the team’s success to the meticulous training and managerial approach of Carlos Corberan, emphasizing the coach’s passion, organization, and attention to detail.

With the team having embraced Corberan’s philosophy over the past 14 months, Wallace revealed the consistent daily meetings and rigorous training sessions that contribute to their defensive solidity, evident in 10 clean sheets in 21 games. He praised the manager’s belief in each player’s strengths, noting the positive impact of substitutes and the collective effort of the squad.

As the discussion turns to the upcoming match against Stoke City, the decision to start Wallace becomes a question. The captain’s recent form and his integral role in the team’s success suggest that he could be a valuable asset from the beginning of the game.
