Albion have brought Kazenga LuaLua back into their starting line-up at Birmingham today.

The winger made a decisive impact off the bench in the midweek cup win over Cheltenham.

He starts this time in support of Craig Mackail-Smith and Chris O’Grady.

Bruno looks set to again play in midfield and Aaron Hughes returns at the back, despite Lewis Dunk’s goalscoring display in midweek.

Sami Hyypia has kept Joao Carlos Teixeira, brought in on loan from Liverpool yesterday, on the bench.

Andrew Crofts misses the game through suspension and Solly March is still struggling with a back problem.

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

The line up looks about as good as it can be given the squad, let's hope Kaz can cause some problems.

Looking forward to getting crofts, Stephens and March back, can get shot of JFC then, hope Chicksen steps up, looked so lightweight against Cheltenham, take a point now. See Billy Sharp scored on debut.

Yes, looks stronger than the original line up tweeted by the club which included Agustien and Fenelon in the starting X1.

Easy goal for Sharp, bad error by Boro keeper.

Interesting that March is not in the squad even though my information is that he is fit.
The lack of attacking options on the bench show the paucity of the squad currently.

So the suggestion you are making, given your, 'information,' is that March is being held back ready for sale, is that it Claude? Love these un-named sources of information comments, written to look so innocent.

Looks a bit threadbare especially with no big centre forward to swing balls into the penalty area to. This big bloke would annoy and put defenders off for cms to nip in and score off his nod down. Dreams maybe. . Left back needed too

Don't underestimate a natural poacher, will score more goals than either CMS or O'Grady.

I don't know about any sale but the info is correct.
Why do you doubt my veracity? Surely you realise that some of us do get to know things; if not from 'contacts' but by the nature of our work.
If you don't want to learn such things, I won't communicate them but ~I only do so because I like to hear such snippets myself even if sometimes they don't materialise. It sometimes helps us to understand what is going on.
