West Brom Throstles take on The Robins

West Brom look to keep on the tails of leaders Newcastle with a win against 7th placed Bristol City.

Vital Quotes:

Roberto Di Matteo was keeping things respectful saying that the coming game will be 'a very, very difficult game. I have a high regard for this team. The manager has done well there.'

West Brom Team News:

No fresh injuries to report and a welcome return for Robert Koren and Chris Wood after their World Cup qualifying successes for Slovenia and New Zealand respectively.

Di Matteo would do well to start with the team that were victorious at Leicester City in the previous League game:

Carson; Zuiverloon, Meite, Olsson, Mattock; Brunt, Dorrans, Jara, Thomas; Moore, Cox.

Player to watch: Jerome Thomas

We think that this could be the game that sees Jerome Thomas really firing on all cylinders. Seven appearances and three goals so far this season is an encouraging start and we think this could be a breakthrough game for him.

Bristol City Team News:

Bristol City will once again be without Bradley Orr, the full-back is still suffering an Achilles injury which he initially picked up in the victory at Barnsley last month.

Cole Skuse will continue to fill in at right-back.

Player to watch: Ivan Sproule

Ivan Sproule returns to the side for the trip to West Brom following his two-week leave of absence.

The 28-year-old Northern Ireland midfielder featured for the reserves in the 2-1 defeat against Southampton on Monday night and looks set to play on Saturday.
