West Brom boss Slaven Bilic has confirmed that some of his squad will undergo scans ahead of the trip to Sheffield Wednesday.

The Croatian shared that there are no big injury complaints from his squad, but a couple of players are suffering from slight knocks.

Albion travel to Hillsborough on Wednesday and it has become a must-win game after they lost to Brentford on Friday evening.

Players such as Kamil Grosicki, Chris Brunt, Gareth Barry and Conor Townsend are yet to even feature in a matchday squad in the opening two fixtures.

Bilic shared the update in his pre-match press conference on Monday, confirming that they will find out whether or not some players will be absent in South Yorkshire.

“Nobody is really injured,” he told the Birmingham Mail.

“We are going to have a couple of scans today, to see if they are knocks or niggles or if they’re something more.

“We’ll find out tonight, or tomorrow morning before we have a training session before we go to Sheffield.”

With so many games needing to be played before the end of July, West Brom and their rivals will need to make many changes.

Bilic only made one switch against Brentford with Grady Diangana returning to replace Callum Robinson at Griffin Park.

There have been problems in the final third with the Baggies yet to find the back of the net since returning, with Matt Phillips and Hal Robson-Kanu taking the majority of the critics in that department.

Kevin Phillips backed Filip Krovinovic to come in against Brentford, and this may be the Croatian’s perfect chance to come into the starting XI at Hillsborough.
