West Brom started their Premier League campaign with a disappointing 3-0 defeat against Leicester City on Sunday.

With that result behind the Baggies, the clash against Harrogate could be the perfect game to bounce back on Wednesday.

Slaven Bilic is expected to make a number of changes, with the league game against Everton next up more of a priority.

Midfield is a problem area for the Albion, with Conor Gallagher expected to add options for the Baggies in a loan switch.

Rekeem Harper came off the bench in the defeat against Leicester, with Sam Field the only other rotation option as it stands.

The 20-year-old has sat down for an interview after his cameo performance, and his comments could highlight one change that is set to be made on Wednesday.

“It could be a first competitive start in a new season for me so it’s a chance to propel myself into the manager’s thoughts and a lot of the other players will be out to prove a point,” he said.

Harper completed 21 minutes on Sunday afternoon, and he did make a difference in the heart of the side – adding much-needed urgency.

The 20-year-old completed one interception and wasn’t dribbled past once by the likes of Harvey Barnes, compared to Romaine Sawyers who was passed three times [WhoScored].

Harper will definitely get the chance against Harrogate, and he must take that chance to impress, especially with Gallagher expected to join sooner rather than later.
