Albion have changed formation as they chase a home win tonight.

Andrew Crofts replaces James Wilson in a 4-3-3 line-up to tackle Ipswich at the Amex.

The Welsh international gets his first start since Halloween and joins Dale Stephens and Beram Kayal in midfield.

That shape worked well for a period after half-time in the 0-0 draw at Brentford on Boxing Day.

As expected, Connor Goldson has been handed the first Championship start of his career.

The former Shrewsbury centre-back deputises for injured Gordon Greer against the in-form Tractor Boys.

Greer limped out of the action at Griffin Park with a hamstring problem.

Goldson, who has come on as sub for both the skipper and Uwe Huenemeier in the last two games, partners Lewis Dunk in defence.

Albion have not won any of their last four games and have gone 215 minutes without a goal.

Bruno captains the side in Greer’s absence.

Ipswich have made their first team changes in seven matches and both are out wide in a 4-4-2 line-up.

Ryan Fraser, who helped turn their Boxing Day game against QPR, comes in on the left wing.

That leads to a positional change for Freddie Sears, who moves into the attack with Brett Pitman dropping to the bench.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles, a whizzkid on loan from Arsenal, is replaced by the more solid Kevin Bru on the right flank.

Ipswich are chasing a fifth successive away win, which would be their best such sequence since 1976.

Albion: Stockdale; Bruno, Goldson, Dunk, Calderon; Crofts, Stephens, Kayal; van La Parra, Hemed, Murphy. Subs: Maenpaa, Chicksen, Ince, Forster-Caskey, Manu, Zamora, Wilson.

Ipswich: Gerken; Chambers, Smith, Berra, Knudsen; Bru, Skuse, Douglas, Fraser; Sears, Murphy. Subs: Bialkowski, Malarczyk, Hyam, Tabb, Oar, Varney, Pitman.
