Swansea City manager Graham Potter has confirmed that star striker Oli McBurnie will miss Tuesday night’s clash with West Brom.
An illness means that the Swans will have to make do without their star striker as West Brom prepare to get life without Darren Moore underway.
“Oli’s illness has developed into a sickness,” Potter told his pre-match press conference.
“We won’t have him. We’ll work towards having him back for the weekend.”
The Swans succumbed to a 1-0 loss to Norwich City last time out and will be looking to bounce back against the Baggies.
Darren Moore was sacked as West Brom manager on Saturday evening following a disappointing 1-1 draw with bottom-of-the-league Ipswich Town.
They currently sit fourth in the Championship table with ten matches left to play but felt a change was needed in order to maintain their promotion push.
This is a timely boost for West Brom following a turbulent weekend, and quite frankly, very harsh weekend as far as Moore is concerned.
But the pressure is now entirely on the players. They will know that they did not play to the most of their ability under Moore but there is nowhere left to hide now.
Only a win against the Swans will do now and a convincing one at that.
