West Bromwich Albion may still be unbeaten in the Championship so far this season, but there will be a sense of disappointment that they’re yet to win since the end of the international break.

The two-week period of no club football was traumatic enough for the Baggies as they lost key defender Dara O’Shea for a number of months, but they’ve picked up back-to-back draws in the last week.

Valerien Ismael faced a tough test against Millwall at The Hawthorns last Saturday and the Londoners escaped with a 1-1 draw, but a win was expected against Derby County in midweek.

West Brom’s strikers are currently misfiring and after an impressive cameo performance against the Rams, fans have been calling for Jordan Hugill’s inclusion from the start for the very first time.

Baggies fans have been reacting to the line-up on social media – here’s what they have to say.
