Many West Brom fans have taken to Twitter to react to manager Valerien Ismael’s admission that he knows who he is going to play in central midfield amidst the Baggies injury crisis ahead of their clash against Coventry in the Championship tomorrow.
A dismal 0-0 draw against Nottingham Forest last weekend left West Brom eight points adrift of the automatic promotion spots, meaning the pressure is increasingly growing on Valerien Ismael, who is expected to deliver an instant return to the Premier League for the Midlands side following his appointment in the summer.
Will West Brom earn promotion?
Now, according to West Brom reporter Joseph Masi, manager Valerien Ismael has claimed he knows who he is going to play in central midfield amidst an injury crisis at the Hawthorns in the crucial clash against Mark Robbins’ side in the Championship tomorrow. The likes of Robert Snodgrass and Matt Phillips are out through injury, with Jake Livermore and Jayson Molumby both suspended for the match.
What did these West Brom fans make of Ismael’s claim?
“Ajayi or Castro I guess? Maybe Jimmy coming out of retirement?”
“I’m gonna be watching Mowatt x Reach”
“Mowatt x Kipre bossing the midfield”
“Ajayi to slot in midfield – Bartley Clarke Kipre at centre-back is my guess”
“I fear this blokes on thin ice”
“I am totally uninspired to watch this team”
If they are able to defeat Coventry tomorrow, this can provide them with some much needed momentum ahead of the festive period. with clashes against Reading, Barnsley and Derby County – all sides in the bottom four – on the horizon in their following three fixtures.
