Head coach Tony Pulis has called for a packed house to roar West Brom on when we face Leicester this weekend, and he’s admitted that Arsenal loanee Serge Gnabry hasn’t yet shown enough to get a first team place.

Beginning with Leicester, he told wba.co.uk that hopefully with the help of the fans, we would be out for revenge from last season and he’d dearly love to see the club register three wins on the spin for the first time since 2012.

‘On Saturday we play Leicester City who turned us over last season. I just hope and pray we get a full house and our fans really get behind the lads. The Norwich fans tried to suck the ball into their net in the opening 20 minutes on Saturday so we know how important it is. We need to get the crowd behind us, but we also need to give them a performance too. Fingers crossed we can do that.’

As for Gnabry, the Birmingham Mail have him quoted as saying the youngster needs to raise his game to get first team action with us because he’s not yet showing the levels he wants from him, or expects from him.

Speaking about the 20 year old, who only has two starts to his name and one substitute appearance since his summer arrival, Pulis explained.

‘Serge has come here to play games, but he just hasn’t been for me, at the moment, at that level to play the games. He’s come from academy football and not played much league football. Does academy football really prepare players for league football? And we’re talking about Premier League football here. As a manager you pick a team that`s going to win a game of football. You pick your best team, you don’t leave people out because you don’t like them, because of this, that and the other.’
