West Brom forward Hal Robson-Kanu has been ruled out of the Baggies’ play-off campaign, BBC West Midlands report.

The Wales international, who has turned out 40 times in all competitions this season, was sent off late on in West Brom’s final league outing against Derby County last weekend.

The club have appeared to be unsuccessful in their appeal of the red card, with boss James Shan confirming the player will miss the playoffs with a three-game ban. 

After finishing fourth in the Championship, the Baggies will take on rivals Aston Villa in the semi-final, with the first leg set to take place at Villa Park on Saturday. 

The return leg will take place at The Hawthorns on Tuesday, with the winners facing either Leeds United or Derby in the final at Wembley. 

However, the Baggies will have to cope without Robson-Kanu in their bid to return to the Premier League at the first occasion.
