Injury Expert shares update on West Brom striker Josh Maja

We’re delighted to welcome injury expert Dr Rajpal Brar as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the injury situation at West Brom...

West Brom striker Josh Maja may not be available for selection until the next international break, according to Dr Rajpal Brar.

The injury expert claims that it all depends on how he’s recovering from his ankle injury after being spotted in a protective boot.

However, it’s understood that could have been taken off already as it may have been a precautionary measure.

Speaking exclusively with West Brom News about Maja’s injury, Brar, a specialist in Physical Therapy and Sports Scientist, said: “A mid-November return could be on the cards depending on how he’s doing behind the scenes.

“There’s even the possibility of the protective boot being taken off and light training ongoing as he builds back the strength there.

“Such injuries can evolve quickly and become tough to gauge initially so a boot can be used as a precautionary measure.”

Maja moved to West Brom this summer but has struggled to get too much game time.

He’s made five appearances in the league this season but has not yet been handed a start by Carlos Corberan.

Thus far, he’s played a grand total of 91 minutes which is not really ideal and his injury will have derailed his chances of fighting for a regular spot in the team.

In other West Brom news, a football expert has been left stunned after behind-the-scenes news has emerged at Hawthorns over the past few months.
