West Bromwich Albion will welcome Hull City to the Hawthorns on Saturday; it will be their first game since the sacking of Steve Clarke.

 

West Brom have lost their last four league games in the Premier League and because of this they have  slipped all the way to 16th, just two places off the dreaded relegation zone.

The Tigers on the other hand look who are currently sitting comfortably in 12th place, although they have only managed to win one in their past six.

 

The Baggies could have a timely boost in goal with their number one choice keeper Ben Foster, who has declared himself fit after recovering from an injury. It’s a bit too early for the return of Victor Anichebe and Frenchmen Nicolas Anelka who miss out due to the lack of match fitness. Caretaker coach Keith Downing will take charge of the tie against Hull, he will be hoping to make a U-turn in the clubs recent form and drive them back up the table by attempting to claim victory over Hull.

 

Hull City duo Sone Aluko and Stephen Quinn still remain on the injury list of long term absentness from the Tiger’s squad.  Robbie Brady will be hoping to get back into the first team put most probably Steve Bruce will stick with the same side that drew with Stoke City last weekend.
