Due to a calf injury, Kyle Bartley will be out for the remainder of February, according to Carlos Corberan of West Brom.

Due to a calf issue, the central defender had to leave the game during halftime of the 2-2 draw with Ipswich. He was unable to play in Tuesday night’s 2-0 victory over Cardiff.

Following the match, the manager revealed that the 32-year-old will probably be sidelined for three weeks. It is anticipated that he will be ready to play when the team visits Coventry on the following month.

According to Birmingham Mail (February 14), Corberan revealed that Bartley has an issue in his calf. “It will require a minimum of ten days, ranging from ten to twenty days, and his absence from games will vary based on the day.” For a second opinion, we have sent him for a scan, although that will probably be around that time.

“With Bartley, it’s crucial to get him well immediately so there’s no chance of another injury. He needs to be recovered, and recovered well. He has performed exceptionally well thus far; he hasn’t missed a single practice or game as of now.

Bartley has played a major role in the team’s defensive record, which is among the best in the Championship this season.

Although a clean sheet against Cardiff indicates that they won’t be unable to replace him in the near future, his absence will be felt immediately.

There will be optimism that Semi Ajayi can return to the team immediately and partner with Cedric Kipre to limit the damage, since he is also scheduled to return from the African Cup of Nations in the coming days.
