West Brom’s Predicted XI vs Rotherham

West Bromwich Albion are targetting a return to winning ways on Saturday after being held to a 0-0 draw with Reading on Easter Monday.

James Shan rang the changes for that encounter as he targeted getting some of the club’s squad players up to speed.

However, against a Rotherham side fighting for their lives, he could opt for a more familiar line-up.

West Brom’s play-off place is secured but the higher the club finish in the table, the easier tie they’ll have in the semi-finals.

With that in mind, the Albion boss told the club website this week: “It’s nice to know we have secured a Play-Off spot but we can’t overlook the two games in front of us.

“We need three points on Saturday to help us finish as high as we possibly can in the league.”

Shan’s comments suggest that a number of the Baggies’ key players may return this weekend so here’s the predicted XI we’ve put together.

With Shan looking to build momentum ahead of the play-offs, victory will be crucial. As such, our predicted XI sees the 40-year-old make five changes from the draw with Reading.

Sam Field keeps his place whilst Stefan Johansen returns to the squad. However, that means that talented youngster Rekeem Harper is dropped. Jake Livermore has an ankle problem so won’t be included.

Ahmed Hegazi is back from injury and available for selection so comes back in for Tosin Adarabioyo.

Kieran Gibbs returns at left-wing back after Conor Townsend replaced him last Monday. The former Arsenal man scored against Hull on Good Friday and looks in good form after coming back from injury a few weeks ago.

Dwight Gayle should also be back in the team after he was rested for West Brom’s draw with Reading. They struggled in front of goal so his return will be welcome.
