Madeley wrote on Twitter: “Team news from Steve Bruce. Kyle Bartley will miss tomorrow after badly twisting his ankle. Scan results (are) due today.
Conor Townsend (is) also out of the Barnsley game.”

Get a win

The Baggies must look to end the season on a high against Barnsley who are relegated to League One.

This has been a disastrous campaign for West Brom, and they need to build from scratch to challenge for promotion again next season.

The club must look to end the season on a high and give the fans something to cheer about.

West Brom have picked up two wins and a draw in their last four games. They are heading into this game on the back of a 1-0 win against Reading.

All eyes will be on Bruce and how the Baggies approach the summer transfer window.

Bruce has made it clear in several interviews that he will make a wholesome change to the squad, with lots of players likely to leave.

He is particularly keen on exploring the loan market and buying players for free. It could be a busy summer transfer window for the club, and it will be nice to end the season on a positive note.

In other West Brom news, Barnsley will be without three players at least when they visit The Hawthorns on Saturday (7 May) for the final game of the season.
