Team News: West Bromwich Albion
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just one fitness concern for the West Bromwich Albion manager Valérien Ismaël to be concerned about from an otherwise complete squad. Rico Richards (Medial Collateral Ligament Tear) is sidelined.
Team News: Millwall
Thanks to a largely available squad, there is just the lone fitness problem for the Millwall manager Gary Rowett to be concerned with. Maikel Kieftenbeld (Knock) won’t be playing here.
Our assessment is that West Bromwich Albion look set to fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they play Millwall, who might well find it a difficult task finding the net themselves.
