Slaven Bilic has hinted that West Brom winger Kamil Grosicki could start the clash against Hull City on Sunday afternoon.
The Baggies welcome the Tigers to the Hawthorns on the back of both sides winning their last games against Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough respectively.
Grosicki was missing for the first two games after the restart but came off the bench at the 3-0 win at Hillsborough.
Bilic has admitted that the Polish international is much closer to starting a game now than he was when first arriving in January.
“The first couple of games he wasn’t involved, but that was because of the competition – you can’t put them all in,” he told the Birmingham Mail.
“Now he’s had his chance. I think that when he came off the bench he was really good. He played enough minutes to put a marker, a stamp on the game.
“He was very hungry, he was active. He was taking people on. He was exactly what I wanted him to be. He gained a big plus for that game, and now he’s much closer to starting a game than he was.”
Grosicki could earn his first Baggies start against his former club, and after a lacklustre performance from Grady Diangana, he could get his chance.
The 32-year-old was superb in his cameo in South Yorkshire, assisting Matheus’ Pereira, having two shots on goal and completing 100% of his passes according to WhoScored.
What better time would it be than Sunday for Grosicki to come and prove himself? The Pole will be itching to get the better of his former side and all it will take is for Bilic to unleash him.
