Captain Evans was taken off with a groin problem while Barry was withdrawn early in the second half due to a back strain but manager Tony Pulis is most concerned about Dawson, who has sustained a knee injury.

“I’ve been at the club nearly three years and it’s seemed like we’ve rarely had an injury but now we’ve got these problems and also Oliver (Burke), James Morrison and Hal (Robson-Kanu) back at home as well,” Pulis told the club’s website (www.wba.co.uk)

Pulis said all three players will be assessed ahead of 13th-placed West Brom’s match against league leaders Manchester City on Saturday.
