West Bromwich Albion will look for their first win in five Championship games when they take on a struggling Stoke City side at The Hawthorns on Monday night.

The Baggies have drawn four and lost one of their last five games, most recently blowing two leads at Charlton last Saturday in a 2-2 draw.

However, Albion will be boosted by the fact that they are back in front of their home crowd and have definitely found more success at The Hawthorns than on the road recently.

Fans will be concerned about Slaven Bilic’s side’s defensive problems, particularly against teams at the bottom of the table, with Albion failing to pick up maximum points against the likes of Barnsley, Charlton and Middlesbrough in recent weeks. They will no doubt be looking to eradicate those issues against another relegation threatened side in Stoke who have only been defeated once in three of their last four Championship games, picking up crucial points recently against Huddersfield and Millwall.

For team news, Grady Diangana is in line to start after getting half an hour as a substitute last week at Charlton. Nathan Ferguson will also be part of the squad after overcoming his knee injury. Kieran Gibbs will be out with a continued hamstring problem while Rakeem Harper and Jack Fitzwater are also sidelined. Kenneth Zohore will be pushing to start again after netting in last week’s draw.

Here’s how we think WBA will line up on Monday night:
