Ulloa back on bench for Albion

Leo Ulloa has been named on the bench for Albion’s game away to Middlesbrough today.

The Argentinian striker has missed nine matches since fracturing a foot bone against Sheffield Wednesday at the start of October.

Stephen Ward has been passed fit to take his place at left-back despite a foot injury.

Peter Brezovan continues in goal in place of Tomasz Kuszczak (stomach) while Adam El-Abd, who came on early for the injured Gordon Greer (calf) in the win against Leicester last Saturday, partners Matthew Upson at centre-back.

While Ulloa was back on the bench, there was no place in the matchday squad for loan striker Leroy Lita. Will Buckley also continues to be missing.

Albion: Brezovan; Bruno, El-Abd, Upson, Ward; Bridcutt, Ince, Crofts; Lopez, Barnes, Conway. Subs: Calderon, Andrews, Dunk, Agustien, LuaLua, Ulloa, Walton.

Middlesbrough: Given; R.Williams, Woodgate, Ayala, Friend; Whitehead, Leadbitter, Butterfield; Adomah, Jutkiewicz, Carayol. Subs: Richardson, Gibson, Main, Smallwood, L.Williams, Haroun, Konstantopoulous.

Referee: Mark Haywood (West Yorkshire).

Team as expected. Hopefully Leo will get a 20/30 minute run out when we're well ahead. Here's hoping. UTA

The way we pick up injuries anything could happen Mikey, I wouldn't write him off just yet, that said, I hope we don't need him.
