Having played ourselves into top spot in the Championship table with a good start to life at The Hawthorns for new head coach Slaven Bilic, West Bromwich Albion make the trip to Elland Road later this evening for our midweek clash with Leeds United, and with them revealing their injury worries ahead of the game yesterday, it’s certainly given a few fans a boost.
Having returned to their team for their defeat to newly promoted Charlton Athletic at the weekend, experienced Adam Forshaw looks set to be ruled out again having aggravated a problem. The biggest boost is news that Pablo Hernandez will likely remain out for this tie as he’s hugely influential for them on a goalscoring front – he’s already got two goals and two assists in eight second tier games.
With their manager Marcelo Bielsa already saying that we’d be the ‘most difficult’ opponent they’ve faced so far this season and confirming that the duo would ‘probably not be in the group’, fans were naturally pleased with that.
It’s still going to be a tough tie, but if we keep improving, we can take the win.
Is that confirmed? ???? he is no doubt their best player … however, I do remember Leeds away last year and the game before Roofe was ruled out and we all thought that would help us out ????
