Quevin Castro starts - Predicted West Brom XI vs Barnsley

West Brom finally wave goodbye to a horrendous season in the Championship when they face off against Barnsley in the final game of the season on Saturday.

The Baggies sit in tenth place going into the game at The Hawthorns, having completely blown their playoff chances with poor form despite changing manager in February.

Now Steve Bruce can take a look at his side ahead of the summer transfer window and get a closer look at some players before making decisions, while also allowing some the chance to say goodbye.

David Button is likely to continue in goal as he nears an agreement on a new contract at the club, where he will likely continue as the number one next season when Sam Johnstone leaves.

In defence Dara O’Shea is seen as the future of the defence and should continue at right-back after a solid performance in the 1-0 win over Reading last time out.

Connor Townsend is likely to continue at left-back as Bruce sticks with a back-four ahead of the new season, with Kyle Bartley partnering the on-loan Matthew Clarke who could play his final game for the club.

In midfield Jayson Molumby has completed a permanent move to the club after his loan from Brighton, but he should drop out of the side for Bruce to get a good look at youngster Quevin Castro.

The academy starlet has impressed for the youth team and did well off the bench last week, so could get the nod for his full Championship debut alongside captain Jake Livermore.

Taylor Gardner-Hickman is arguably the player of the season for the club this year in his breakthrough campaign and should come back into the side on the wing where he can use his dynamism to get forward.

On the opposite flank Adam Reach has been a favourite of Bruce’s and he will likely get another chance to prove his worth by finally getting a start in his natural position out wide.

In attack there will be no Andy Carroll after his release from the club was confirmed, so Karlan Grant will continue as the main man up front after notching his 16th goal of the season against Reading.

Alongside him Bruce has options, but it’s likely that Callum Robinson can get the nod after notching the assist for that goal in the last game.

Together they have combined for eight goals this season, a tally only beaten by Aleksander Mitrovic and Harry Wilson at Fulham

Predicted West Brom XI vs Barnsley: Button; O’Shea, Bartley, Clarke, Townsend; Reach, Livermore, Castro, Gardner-Hickman; Grant, Robinson
