Albion make changes to face Plymouth

Albion make changes to face Plymouth

The middle game of three in one week should be a formality for Albion but the demands being made on the players this week means that Robbo will have to make changes to keep the team fresh today.

After a pretty draining match against Blackpool on Wednesday, where both Cech and Miller picked up injuries, RDM also has to consider the Scunthorpe home game on Tuesday.

With the Baggies setting their training camp up north to try and cut down excessive mileage between games, RDM will be looking to Joe Mattock to come in for Cech who has been ruled out with the hamstring problem he picked up in the midweek 3-2 win.

Ishmael Miller will not be involved in today's game after he damaged his ankle in the later stages of the Blackpool game.

Di Matteo has decided to call up Academy star George Thorne to the travelling squad, at least as cover on the bench. Thorne made his Albion debut as a late substitute in November's 4-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday.

With a goal difference of +27 compared to Plymouth's -14 all the signs are there for another important away win. Having said that, the Pilgrims are battling to get out of the relegation zone and will be fighting for every ball.

But, the fact that all of Argyle's four home victories this season have been against teams in the bottom 10 suggests that we can keep the pressure on Newcastle and keep that second place promotion spot from Forest.
