March starts, Mackail-Smith on bench

The Argus: Solly March Solly March

Albion have handed Solly March his third Championship start.

And Craig Mackail-Smith is on the bench.

March comes into the side at Barnsley today as one of three changes.

Oscar Garcia as expected brings in Inigo Calderon for suspended right-back Bruno and starts with Dale Stephens rather than Rohan Ince in midfield.

The introduction of March for Jake Forster-Caskey is arguably more of a surprise – but reward for the young winger’s bright performance off the bench at Blackburn on Tuesday.

March’s selection will go down well with fans asking for a more attacking approach from their side.

Ince suffered a dead leg at Ewood Park and is not in the 18 but striker Mackail-Smith is among the subs after proving his fitness with 90 minutes for the development squad on Monday.

Albion: Kuszczak; Calderon, Greer, Upson, Ward; Andrews, Stephens, March; Rodriguez, Lingard, Ulloa. Subs: Brezovan, Chicksen, Dunk, David Lopez, Forster-Caskey, LuaLua, Mackail-Smith.

Now I know Tug will like this line up, apart from Ince it's what we were talking of a day or two ago.

maybe 4-5-1 with Lingard pressing forward from midfield and Solly, along with Rodriguez, giving us width on both sides when possible.

A scary thought for the Barnsley defense, 20 minutes left in the game, they are losing and on come Kaz and CMS, not what you want after you have been chasing the game for 70 minutes.

Hi bro, looks like a line up that can score, neither side will be sitting back that's for sure.

yeah I could have gone for Dunk today and Greer for Leicester match, if only to give Greer a wakeup call.
Surprised that Barnsley are only going with one real striker.

it matters not where any of us are, if cameras are not at the ground the stream can't happen. I do get to watch a couple of championship matches each week, saw the Wigan game live this morning on TV.

I didn't say it did - you replied to my post so I thought that in the interests of forging relationships with fellow Albion fans I would reply - but thanks for pointing out to me that games have to have cameras present in order to be televised -- I never would have guessed!
