West Brom take on Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon at Ewood Park aiming to extend their winning run to four matches.
The Baggies edged closer towards a return to the Premier League with a comfortable 2-0 midweek win over Derby County, which saw them restore their current five-point gap from third place Brentford.
Tony Mowbray’s Rovers currently sit 10th in the Championship and still hope to have a small shot in reaching the playoffs with four games to go after bouncing back with an impressive 3-2 win over Cardiff.
The Baggies will be looking to keep up this impressive run as they look to get over the finish line with so few games remaining.
In terms of team news, Grady Diangana and Kieran Gibbs are still doubts with hamstring problems whereas Ahmed Hegazi returns after serving his suspension that he picked up after his red card against Hull City.
Here’s how we think WBA will line up:
GK: Sam Johnstone
Had a very quiet evening against Derby but kept another clean sheet. Should start in goal again.
RB: Dara O'Shea
O’Shea picked up his first goal at The Hawthorns in the win over Derby and keeps growing with each performance. Deserves to start again.
CB: Semi Ajayi
Ajayi was brought in against Derby for the suspended Hegazi and was solid. I can see him keeping his place.
CB: Ahmed Hegazi
Hegazi is back from suspension and was in form before his sending off. I would like to see him come back into the team to partner Ajayi.
LB: Conor Townsend
Townsend again did a very good job on the left side and helped the team get another clean sheet. With Gibbs still a doubt, the full back is certain to step in if he is unavailable.
CM: Jake Livermore (C)
Livermore beefed up the midfield which shut out Derby in midweek. The club captain looks sure to keep his place.
CM: Romaine Sawyers
Sawyers dictated the midfield battle on Wednesday and was immense in making sure Derby didn’t get into too many dangerous areas. Set to start again.
CAM: Matheus Pereira
Pereira is back to his best and put in another star showing against Derby. Should be the first name on the team-sheet.
RW: Grady Diangana
Diangana is a doubt with a hamstring problem but it didn’t look as serious as first feared and Slaven Bilic is still to make a decision as to whether he will be available. If he is, the winger is sure to start after getting on the scoresheet in midweek.
LW: Kamil Grosicki
Grosicki was a threat on the left side for the whole game against the Rams and bagged another assist for the opening goal. Deserves another start.
ST: Charlie Austin
Austin didn’t get on the scoresheet midweek despite testing the Derby goalkeeper. However, his energy and work rate were outstanding as the Rams lost possession on multiple occasions when playing it out from the back. That type of effort will be needed again against Blackburn and I would like to see him start.
