West Bromwich Albion face a quick turnaround in our 2018/19 Championship campaign. The weekend saw us lose our opener against Bolton Wanderers in a 2-1 scoreline, but we have the opportunity to rectify that quickly and pick up our first win of the campaign in tonight’s clash with Nottingham Forest.
We head to the City Ground for a 7.45pm kick-off this evening and the big news, of course, was yesterday evening’s confirmation of the deal seeing Dwight Gayle and Salomon Rondon change places. Rondon heads to Newcastle United for the season, whilst Gayle comes in the opposite direction to The Hawthorns for the year ahead.
With that news, the big question then becomes whether or not Gayle makes the starting line-up for head coach Darren Moore as we look to pack more of a punch up front than we did against Bolton.
With the confirmation of the teamsheets for tonight’s clash, that question has been answered so now it’s about the three points and the first win of the year to get us up and running.
Doing battle at the City Ground…
