Report outlines whether West Brom's Salomon Rondon will be fit for Watford clash

The striker had to limp off during the early stages of the Baggies' clash with Manchester City on Saturday.

West Brom are set to receive a major injury boost ahead of their clash with Watford this Saturday as the Birmingham Mail reports that Salomon Rondon is likely to be fit for the game against the Hornets.

The 26-year-old had to be taken off after just 21 minutes of the Baggies' encounter with Manchester City last weekend with the Mail reporting that there were initial concerns that he had pulled a muscle in his back.

However, the Mail are now claiming that the problem is only a minor one so the Venezuelan should be ready to feature against Quique Sanchez Flores' side.

Having Rondon back so quickly will be a major relief for Tony Pulis. With just six games to go this season, his side are 13th in the Premier League but are just four points adrift of the top half of the table.

However, their run-in looks somewhat daunting on paper as Watford are the only team out of all of West Brom's remaining opponents that sit below them in the table as they face trips to Arsenal and Tottenham while also hosting West Ham and Liverpool before the campaign draws to a close.

So having their top goalscorer back immediately could well prove to be a massive boost to their chances of finishing the season strongly.
