West Bromwich Albion will be looking to make it three wins on the bounce when they take on playoff hopefuls Derby County at The Hawthorns on Wednesday evening.
The Baggies were truly spectacular in attack as they grabbed an important three points with a 4-2 win over Hull City, a win which kept them in a healthy position in the top two.
They will need to keep it going due to the surging form of third-place Brentford, who have won all of their games since the restart.
Albion will also looking to be better defensively with them being very susceptible to set-pieces in the victory over Hull, which was slightly worrying.
This will be no easy game for Slaven Bilic’s men with the visitors winning three of their four games back, so the home side will have to be on it from minute one to try and pick up another crucial win as they edge closer towards Premier League football next season.
In terms of team news, there will be at least two changes to the side with Kieran Gibbs ruled out with a hamstring injury and Ahmed Hegazi suspended after his sending off on Sunday.
Here’s how we think WBA will line up:
GK: Sam Johnstone
Made a stunning save to keep Albion in front at 3-2 against Hull which ultimately led to victory. Should start in goal again.
RB: Dara O'Shea
O’Shea has come in and carried on showing his mature and impressive performances. Deserves to start again.
CB: Semi Ajayi
Ajayi was on the bench for the last two games but is sure to come in for this game to replace the suspended Hegazi.
CB: Kyle Bartley
Bilic has had the decision taken out of his hands with Hegazi’s sending off so Bartley is expected to keep his place.
LB: Conor Townsend
Townsend replaced the injured Gibbs against Hull and was impressive throughout. With Gibbs expected to miss out for this game, Townsend should come in again.
CM: Jake Livermore (C)
Livermore has been brought on off the bench in the last two matches to see games out. I think he’ll be brought back in to the starting lineup to beef up the midfield as Albion lost some key 50/50’s against Hull which was concerning.
CM: Romaine Sawyers
Sawyers wasn’t as dominant as he would have liked against Hull but is important to the team as he protects the back four. I expect him to keep his place.
CAM: Matheus Pereira
Pereira was on fire against Hull bagging three assists and seems back to his best. Should start again.
RW: Grady Diangana
Diangana entered the field on Sunday and was a menace. Scored a clinical goal and toyed with the Hull defence with his outrageous skill. I would like to see him come into the line up and show his quality again.
LW: Kamil Grosicki
Grosicki in the second half against Hull was a real threat and will be boosted so much after scoring his first goal for the Baggies. I would like to see him retain his spot on the left side.
ST: Charlie Austin
It’s two goals in two starts for Austin who has found his shooting boots and showed his predatory instincts with his sharp finish against the Tigers. Should start again as he looks to keep the goals flowing.
