Poyet happy to upset players in bid to make play-offs
Albion boss Gus Poyet is not bothered about upsetting his players in the fight to be involved in the promotion run-in.
Poyet has some tough calls to make now that he has a virtually full-strength squad, starting with a choice between Inigo Calderon or Gonzalo Jara Reyes at right-back at Burnley today.
Calderon scored in each of the last two home games but Jara Reyes is available again following his three-match ban for a red card at Blackpool.
Poyet told The Argus: “If Calde deserves to play in our opinion then he will. It doesn’t matter who it is.
“That is a decision and it doesn’t bother me. I want to have everybody fit and then afterwards make the decisions for the good of the team.
“That will make a few people upset but that doesn’t bother me. It’s part of my job. I like that.
“If I don’t have to make anyone upset it’s because it’s too easy and I don’t like that. I like to have decisions to make, so I’m pleased that he (Jara Reyes) is back.”
Poyet has vowed to change both players and tactics at Burnley in search of Albion’s first away win since early February. “It’s going to be something different for sure,” he said.
The possibilities include partnering Sam Vokes against one of his old clubs with Craig Mackail-Smith.
Vokes was on loan to Burnley from Wolves when they beat nine-man Albion at The Amex in December.
The Welsh international target man could come face to face on his return to Turf Moor withbest friend and former Lymington school chum Josh McQuoid, who is on loan to Burnley from Millwall.
