Albion’s current campaign has been largely positive under Corberan’s management, despite their recent defeat to Southampton. Although currently sitting just outside the playoff positions on goal difference, the team has shown improvement over the past month or two, raising hopes for a sustained push into the top six as the season unfolds. The upcoming challenge against the second-placed Tractor Boys promises to be formidable.

Corberan provided an encouraging update on the injury front in a recent interview with the club’s media, highlighting the return of key players such as John Swift, Josh Maja, and Jeremy Sarmiento. The recovery of these players adds depth to the team, especially in the attacking department, reinforcing the squad’s overall strength when everyone is available for competition.

While the decision to include Swift and Maja in the upcoming game depends on their response to training sessions and physical assessments, Corberan expressed optimism about their readiness. Notably, the team managed to secure ten points in the five games that Swift missed, showcasing the squad’s resilience. However, the return of the ex-Reading player is anticipated to provide a significant boost, given his status as the top scorer this season and his ability to enhance the team’s offensive threat with quality and composure in the final third.

The article also notes that Maja, who has yet to make a substantial impact with no goals in five league appearances, was showing promise before his injury at Bristol City. With Daryl Dike also sidelined, Maja’s return is crucial, providing the manager with an additional striking option, especially since Brandon Thomas-Asante is currently the only natural striker available. The upcoming busy schedule, including the festive period, emphasizes the importance of having a fully equipped squad to compete and accumulate crucial points in the race for success.
