Kyle Bartley’s injury during West Bromwich Albion’s 2-2 draw with Ipswich Town, according to Carlos Corberan, had a significant effect on the match. At Portman Road, the center-back was substituted at halftime, with the Baggies leading 1-0 because to an outstanding solo effort from Tom Fellows.

But with Bartley out of the picture, West Brom was unable to hold off Ipswich early in the second half, as Nathan Broadhead gave them the equalizer. In the 76th minute of the match, Midlands outfit substitute John Swift gave them the lead again. However, as extra time wore on, Omari Hutchinson found a way to equalize once more.

Corberan wasn’t happy that both goals were scored through set pieces, and that’s where Bartley’s absence was felt. The centre-back wasn’t the only injury West Brom picked up in Suffolk however, with striker Daryl Dike lasting only 10 minutes after going off the bench in the second half.

After an abysmal string of injuries, the USA international sobbed as she left the field at Ipswich.

When questioned about Bartley’s injury, Corberan told Sky Sports, “Unfortunately, having him on the field was one of the keys for me because we knew how important he is in those areas, to defend set pieces.” “He was having a very good game before we had to change him at half-time.”

“I think in certain moments we should have attacked more and tried to influence more of the game,” Corberan bemoaned the game. They made excellent use of the second half of one throw-in phase to score and alter the mood. We can only win the game by attacking more and attempting to defend less after this.

“We had a great individual effort in the attack to score the second goal, and I thought the key was to keep attacking after that. They employed a second phase from a set piece again because we were unable to stop them.”
