Albion have handed four players debut against Sheffield Wednesday – including young striker Shamir Fenelon.

The former youth-teamer has enjoyed a bright pre-season and supports new boy Chris O’Grady against the Owls today.

David Stockdale and Aaron Hughes complete the quartet of debutants.

Inigo Calderon stands in at left-back, as he did in the opener at Leeds last season.

Solly March, who underwent a fitness test earlier this afternoon, is not in the 18.

There was also a late change of sub goalkeeper for the Seagulls with Christian Walton replacing Casper Ankergren.

Albion: Stockdale; Bruno, Greer, Hughes, Calderon; Forster-Caskey, Ince, Crofts; LuaLua, Fenelon, O'Grady. Subs: Walton, Toko, Buckley, Agustien, Dunk, Mackail-Smith, Chicksen

Starting with two strikers, can't be bad, what a result for Fenelon.

No start for CMS---but no doubt he will come on as sub at some stage?

well Sami did say a few days ago that CMS must be patient. My guess is that his injury is close to being 100% fixed, but maybe not quite there yet.

looking at the line up, is this a 4-4-2 approach, hard to tell, but it looks like it.

4-4-2 I'd say.

My prediction is 1-1.

Only minutes to go until we're off.

One of the oldest back fours we've ever put out? Hope we are not exposed for pace. Great to see Fenelon get his chance although I do wonder whether Sammi sees CMS as having much of a role this season. Good atmosphere building and the Wi-Fi is working!

Looks more like 4-3-3 to me. KFC is the weak link. Never fancy us much when he plays. Surely Augustein or Toko are better than him???? Or even Buckers.
