West Brom: Ismael must unleash Callum Robinson against Millwall

West Bromwich Albion’s next Championship game sees them take on Millwall at The Den on Saturday after succumbing to a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Preston North End in midweek, leaving Valerien Ismael in desperate need of a strong performance and positive result from his side this weekend.

On the chalkboard

In terms of which players the Baggies boss could select in his starting XI to take on the Lions, one man who didn’t start in the midweek defeat but we feel should be in the team from the beginning on Saturday is Callum Robinson.

Which La Liga club did West Brom sign Okay Yokuslu on loan from in the 2021 January transfer window?

In the Preston game, the attacker – who is currently picking up £18k-per-week according to Salary Sport – was brought on in the 56th minute to replace Matt Phillips but could only record two shots at goal in his time on the pitch, with both being off target.

Despite this underwhelming return, the Irishman’s previous appearance for the Baggies off the bench in their 3-0 win over Peterborough United last weekend was a much more eventful one, with Robinson showing his attacking and creative ability by providing two assists in just 16 minutes.

Described as a player who “gives his all” for the team on the pitch by Baggies podcaster Adrian Goldberg, the 26-year-old should be given the chance to show what he can do from the start once again after Daryl Dike unfortunately suffered a muscle injury and will be out of action for a significant period of time.

Should Ismael start Callum Robinson against Millwall?

No

No

The Express & Star recently revealed in a poll of West Brom fans that 90% of respondents would like to see Ismael relieved of his duties at The Hawthorns, presumably due to the fact that Albion have won just one of their six previous league games. Therefore, the match at Millwall could be huge in terms of West Brom’s promotion hopes as well as the manager’s immediate future at the club.

It could also be a big one for Robinson if he can show why he should be starting regularly. In the process, he may just keep his boss in a job for a little while longer if he makes an impact similar to his one against Peterborough.
