Albion host Burnley at The Hawthorns this Monday before they head south the Monday following. Dunk will miss a meeting with the Baggies, the Clarets and Tottenham. Potter said of the incident post match: “We have to be honest, I think it was a reckless challenge. It was excessive force and it was a red card. “Knowing Lewis, he has just had a header from a corner and is just trying to follow through and block something, but it’s not a good challenge and we have to learn from that and be better.”
