Baggies To Riverside

West Brom will look to build on their 4-0 thrashing of Everton and take on the Boro boys with a renewed confidence. Boro won't capitulate in the same way Everton did though!

Vital Quotes:

Middlesbrough Team News:

Mendieta is struggling to be fit with a calf strain and Schwarzer faces a late fitness test.(from): Schwarzer, Jones, Knight, Parnaby, Queudrue, Pogatetz, Southgate, Ehiogu, Riggott, Bates, Doriva, Boateng, Mendieta, Rochemback, Kennedy, Morrison, Johnson, Nemeth, Maccarone, Hasselbaink, Viduka, Yakubu.

Player to watch: Hasselbaink

He's started scoring again, and when he goes on a run, he is lethal.

West Bromwich Albion Team News:

Goalkeer Chris Kirkland is still out so Kuszczak will play. Paul Robinson returns from a three match ban but says he is taking nothign for granted with regards to a first team recall as Robson might keep faith with the same team who beat Everton 4-0 last weekend. (from): Kuszczak, Watson, Clement, Davies, Albrechtsen, Robinson, Greening, Inamoto, Wallwork, Kamara, Kanu, Horsfield, Ellington, Earnshaw, Hoult, Scimeca, Gaardsoe, Moore, Johnson, Carter.

Player to watch: Kanu

Be interesting to see if he plays. Always thought he looked great for Arsenal, where did it all go wrong - and does anyone care?!

Match Facts & Stats

Boro are 11th with 18 points and could rise to 8th.
