Albion make seven changes

First published in Sport by

Oscar Garcia has made seven changes for tonight’s FA Cup fifth round clash with Hull City at the Amex.

Leonardo Ulloa starts up front but Tomasz Kuszczak, Stephen Ward and Andrea Orlandi are all rested from the team that beat Leeds 1-0 six days ago.

Skipper Gordon Greer is on the bench along with Solly March and David Rodriguez while January signing Dale Stephens misses the game as he is cup-tied.

Will Buckley, Kazenga LuaLua, Keith Andrews and Jake Forster-Caskey all return to the starting line-up.

Peter Brezovan plays in goal while Lewis Dunk and Adam Chicksen are handed opportunities in defence.

Bruno was back on the bench after a thigh problem ruled him out last week.

Hull included the highly-rated Sone Aluko in the starting line-up after just a couple of substitute performances following four months out with an Achilles problem.

Visiting boss Steve Bruce picked a strong side including Curtis Davies, Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore who were all expected to be rested.

Regular No. 1 Allan McGregor, available after suspension, returned in goal in place of former Albion loanee Steve Harper.

Albion: Brezovan; Calderon, Dunk, Upson, Chicksen; Ince, Andrews, Forster-Caskey; Buckley, Ulloa, LuaLua. Subs: Bruno, Greer, March, Rodriguez, Lopez, Obika, Ankergren.

Hull: McGregor; Elmohamady, Davies, Faye, Figueroa; Koren, Livermore, Huddlestone, Quinn; Aluko, Sagbo. Subs: Bruce, Chester, Meyler, Boyd, Fryatt, Henderson, Harper.

Not to bad, good to see Ulloa, Lua Lua, Buckley starting together at last, Andrews and Ince will be good, but surprised about KFC but in Oscar we trust, I would of gone for Orlandi for KFC,

I think if any of the 'spine' of the team Upson, Ince and Ulloa had been left out supporters would felt we'd not given it a proper go. Would have liked to see TK play but Buckley and Lua Lua will definitely entertain if they're reasonably fit.
