It will be all friends and handshakes today as former West Brom Assistant Manager Nigel Pearson and former Albion player Craig Shakespeare host West Brom at The Walkers Stadium.
‘I played twice and scored twice against Leicester last season.’
Leicester Team News:
Leicester have no fresh injury worries so Nigel Pearson could name an unchanged side from the one that beat QPR 2-1 last weekend.
Player to watch: D J Campbell
Not certain to start by any means but this former Birmingham City goal grabber could feature today and break a few Baggie hearts.
West Brom Team News:
Apart from long term injuries, (to Ishmael Miller, Neil Clement, and James Morrison), Roberto Di Matteo has the whole of his squad available for selection for the game today.
Player to watch: Joe Mattock
Joe Mattock is bound to get a lot of stick from his former club’s supporters. How he reacts to this animosity could be a key to how this game develops, especially at the back, for Albion.
