Russell Martin expects to have the same squad to choose from for Monday’s Championship finale against West Bromwich Albion.

Midfielders Liam Walsh and Jay Fulton will miss out with injury, while Joe Allen will serve the final game of a three-match ban.

Goalkeeper Steven Benda is a long-term absentee, but head coach Martin will have the same group to choose from as he did at Hull City last weekend.

“We are in the same situation as we were at Hull last weekend,” said Martin.

“Walshy and Jay miss out, they will not go away and get ready for pre-season when they will be totally fine and ready.

“We know we can finish in the top 10, and to do that we need a win, so that will be the aim.”
