This will be a really good test for the team and hopefully a positive result will result in a massive confidence boost and allow us to kick on from there.

WestYorksRoyal I sincerely hope Rinomhota at RWB is a rarely repeated experiment. We have an experienced player, known for his fitness and athleticism, who can do that role if Yiadom is unavailable. We also have an academy prospect.

Gunter will not play for us again. Rinomhota will be used there again as its saves on substitute spots. Once Blackett is back Howe will drop out of contention all together.

One of Richards/Blackett will be on the bench with McIntyre.

Rino really shouldn't start at RWB given we have four options who specialise in that area.

Not suggesting that m8. Was trying to convey in the instance of an on pitch injury Rinomhota will likely be used in that fashion.
I imagine if one of our Wing Backs gets injured between games Howe will start.

WBA undefeated in 7 at home, so a point will be an excellent result even after yesterday's performance and result. Key thing for me will be to see if we can replicate that level of performance or near to it.

Yeah agreed. Can take a defeat as long as there is something to keep building with

WBA did lose in the cup at home last week. Know it’s a weakened side etc but still worth noting

Not expecting anything result wise - especially after a good win, but really want to see a solid performance and try and build on Cardiff. Tbh, I think if we see that than we have every chance of getting something out of the game. I know it’s midweek but free travel would be great if we can get 600+, won’t hold my breath though.

Looks like we impressed our old friend David Prutton anyway - he has gone for a 2-1 Reading win...

But.. he still thinks we will finish bottom? And said that Cardiff were just unlucky.

Batman streams is usually decent. I found one for the Cardiff game and it was phenomenal quality (with a 15-30 second delay unfortunately). I'll double check the name and tell you tomorrow.

Heard we've sold over 700 for it. Not amazing but not awful either considering the context.

The Nags is probably a good shout, but not sure, only every watched a Reading red-button game at home.

royalp-we I was sceptical about going 3 at the back - but it worked against Cardiff soooo well!!! I think it will suit us away from home even better; we have a really strong spine and it will make us difficult to break down. I feel confident Miazga, Morrison and Moore (& Rafael) can deal with the best attackers in this league, West Brom will be that test.

Definitely the same team for me - but we really need to look after Omar Richards - the sooner Blackett and Obita are back to provide cover then I’ll feel we have cover for every position and every spot is up for grabs.

Saw somewhere that Blackett is back in training. Either way if there was an issue Yiadom switches left and Rinomhota plays right..
and if it was a bigger issue, Gomes could always recall Gunter from the U21's.

If, and it is an if for the moment, the Puşcaş we saw on Sunday is his usual self and that wasnt just a great "one in ten" performance from him, he will cause every defence problems.

It genuinely looked like we had an established premier league striker playing for us on Sunday.

Well, that was his second excellent performance in two games.

He looked very good at Wycombe (and scored, of course)

He looked (in that game) almost as if he was trying too hard
