Bojan Radulovic spearheads Albion under-23s' bid to keep their title hopes alive at Everton tonight.

The Spanish-born Serbian striker has taken over the role of chief goal scorer for Simon's Rusk's prospects from Arron Connolly.

Republic of Ireland hotshot Connolly is now at Luton on loan after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Radulovic has risen to the challenge of replacing Connolly's goals with four in his last five games.

Albion bought Radulovic at the end of the 2018 January transfer window from Lleida, where he played for the first team in Spain's third tier.

They saw off competition from Tottenham and Brugge to sign Radulovic, who represented the under-18s and under-23s last season before a loan return to Spain at the start of this season with Espanyol B in the fourth tier.

He continued his rich vein of scoring form with a goal in the 2-2 draw against Swansea at the Amex in the under-23s's most recent outing.

That appeared to have ruined hopes of catching leaders Everton until David Unsworth's youngsters lost 4-3 at Manchester City 48 hours later.

Albion go into tonight's showdown at Goodison Park (7pm) three points adrift of Everton and with an inferior goal difference with two games to go.

The last day of the season is April 29, when Albion host Chelsea and Everton visit West Ham.

It has been another outstanding season for Rusk's side following promotion, irrespective of the result tonight.

They have beaten Manchester City (twice), Spurs and Chelsea and have drawn with Arsenal and Liverpool.
