Mowbray: Worried Over Fierce Battle

Mowbray: Worried Over Fierce Battle

Former Hibernian manager Tony Mowbray is worried that his West Bromwich Albion side could fall fowl at Molineux in the Championship Play-Offs against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Baggies travel to Molineux on Sunday, with the hope of a draw or a victory to take back to the Hawthorns on Wednesday night.

'I remember Mick when he played the game,' said the former Hibs boss. 'And I am sure his side will be competitive - which will make it a competitive game.

'But we knew that, even before the ball starts rolling we know it will be like that.

'I will expect a competitive approach from Mick's team and he can expect the same from mine, but I hope the game does not become over-physical.

'We have got to be ready for that scenario, but it is supposed to be a football match so it is important people keep their cool in both legs.

'It is going to be a hostile environment at Molineux, but we have been there before this season and done well, so I am not expecting anyone to panic.

'The higher the stakes, the more noise there will be in the stadium but I am confident the players will be able to express themselves and play the expansive game we want because our strength is to play attacking football.'
