West Brom boss Valerian Ismail has made two changes to his squad, which were beaten 1-0 by Huddersfield Town on Saturday, as Albion take on Blackpool this evening.
Darnell Furlong comes back into the starting XI ahead of young Taylor Gardner-Hickman at right wing-back, while Jason Molumby, as expected, comes into midfield before captain Jake Livermore, who begins his three-match suspension here .
It will be the first time Molumbi has started a game on the same side tonight as his central teammate, fellow summer arrival Alex Mowat.
The front three keep their places; Grady Diangana, Carlone Grant and Matt Phillips all struggled at Huddersfield, where Daniel Sinani scored the winner in the early stages of the game, but Ismail gave the trio a vote of confidence and they all got the green light on attacking counterpart Jordan Hugill here. and Callum Robinson, who remains between the two options.
Also on the bench are young winger Tom Fellowes along with Gardner-Hickman, Adam Reich and Semi Ajayi. Still no Robert Snodgrass though.
The hosts start with Kenny Dougal and Shayne Lavery, while CJ Hamilton is on the bench with Jerry Yates. Gary Maddine, who wreaked havoc for Albion in the third round of the FA Cup at Bloomfield Road last season, started.
