The West Brom XI Shan must field to earn 3 points against Brentford



West Brom will be looking to make it back-to-back wins under caretaker boss James Shan after a resounding 3-0 win over Swansea City in midweek.

The Baggies remained fourth in the table after the win but head to London to take on Brentford at Griffin Park this weekend hoping they can cut the gap to the sides above them and keep their faint hopes of an automatic promotion place alive.

Shan will be hoping to add to the convincing win this past midweek as the hierarchy at the club consider their options in appointing a new boss.

But if the caretaker wants to keep the winning run going ahead of such time he is replaced, this is the XI he must field to earn three points against Brentford.

GK: Sam Johnstone

Number one under Darren Moore and that remains the same under Shan as the goalkeeper keeps his place.

RB: Mason Holgate

Will be hoping to follow up on his goal last time out with another as well as a performance to earn three points for his team.

CB: Ahmed Hegazi

Missed out on the win over Swansea, the Egyptian should be fit to start tomorrow.

CB: Kyle Bartley

Impressive against his old side – should keep his place in the team this weekend.

LB: Conor Townsend

Kieran Gibbs might be unavailable for this weekend’s trip to Ipswich, if he is, Townsend could well come in to take his place

RCM: Jake Livermore

One of the more experienced members of the squad, his inclusion will be vital this weekend.

CM: Stefan Johansen

Played well in midweek and is certain to keep his place in the side to build on the positive performance last time out.

LCM: Chris Brunt

With no Matt Phillips in the team for tomorrow’s game, Chris Brunt could be preferred in the midfield three after impressing Shan this week.

RF: Dwight Gayle

Should operate in his usual spot on the right of a front three.

ST: Jay Rodriguez

The main man down the middle, Rodriguez will once again lead the line for the Baggies.

LF: Jacob Murphy

Back in the side in midweek and he should prove a handful for the Ipswich defence when the game kicks off tomorrow afternoon.
