Middlesbrough have brought back pass master Grant Leadbitter to try and cause Albion problems today.
Boro’s leading provider of assists returns from a two-game ban and goes straight into their side in place of Nathaniel Chalobah.
They will use Lee Tomlin just off striker Danny Graham in a 4-2-3-1 set-up.
Bright prospect Luke Williams gets the nod over ex-Albion trialist Emmanuel Ledesma on the left.
Fit-again striker Kei Kamara must settle for a place on the bench.
Middlesbrough: Konstantopoulos; Varga, Omeruo, Gibson, Friend; Leadbitter, Whitehead; Adomah, Tomlin, L.Williams; Graham. Subs: Steele, Butterfield, Ledesma, Chalobah, Morris, Kamara, Atkinson.
