Confirmed West Brom starting XI v Middlesbrough

West Brom have confirmed their starting XI for the Championship clash against Middlesbrough this afternoon.

The Baggies welcome their opponents to the Hawthorns looking to make it consecutive wins before the international break.

Confirmed on Twitter prior to kick-off, Valerien Ismael has made four changes with the likes of Adam Reach starting.

Neil Warnock has been on top form once again ahead of this one.

The experienced manager has welcomed a hostile environment at The Hawthorns as he looks to spoil the party.

Unfortunately for him, he may have spoken far too soon as defeat here could spell the end for him at the Riverside.

There are numerous issues to deal with for the Albion though, with the likes of Alex Mowatt still ruled out.

Jake Livermore has failed to reach the same heights as he has previously in recent weeks and Robert Snodgrass has done his best.

Must win.

It is critically important that we continue picking up three points.

Fulham are on fire right now and are threatening to overtake Bournemouth who lost their first game of the season in midweek.

Should they start to falter, the Albion have to be ready to step up and take that spot of them by picking up consistent points.

Another win here would have the squad full of confidence, and that can start something special in the Championship – fingers crossed.

In other West Brom news, Neil Lennon was thrilled with this Albion fringe player in the win over Hull.
