West Brom manager Slaven Bilic has made a number of changes to his side for the Carabao Cup clash with Harrogate Town.

The Croatian has handed debuts to David Button and Cedric Kipre, with Lee Peltier also getting his first start for the Baggies in defence.

As confirmed via the Baggies Twitter account prior to kick-off, the only player to survive Sunday’s defeat is Dara O’Shea in the heart of defence with 10 changes confirmed.

West Brom will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing start to the Premier League season on Sunday afternoon.

Bilic reverted to a 3-4-3 formation and used the majority of players from last season, including new permanent signings Grady Diangana, Matheus Pereira and Callum Robinson.

A third-round tie against either Southampton or Brentford is on the line, with the Albion looking to go better than last season in the same competition.

Bilic made nine changes in the first-round tie against Millwall at the Hawthorns but crashed out of the competition in a 2-1 defeat.

Their Premier League status has seen them go one step further automatically, and this will be seen as a great opportunity to progress against a newly-promoted League Two side.
