West Brom boss offers fitness update on Maja, Ajayi


West Brom forward Josh Maja is in contention to face Ipswich Town on Saturday after returning to training.

Maja had been out of West Brom’s squad for over two months with an ankle injury.

The Nigeria international has missed the Baggies’ last 10 games due to the injury.

Albion manager Carlos Corberan offered an update on the striker during his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

“It’s always very positive to see the group grow,” Corberan stated.

“We have recovered players who were out of the team through injury, players like John Swift and Josh Maja.”

Corberan also provided an update on the fitness level of Maja’s compatriot, Semi Ajayi.

“Semi Ajayi played 90 minutes in both of his games for Nigeria, which is a real positive, especially when he hasn’t been playing for most of the minutes with our team. He has the possibility to play and he has recovered well,” the gaffer added.
