Under-23s preview: West Bromwich Albion (A)

13 February 2020

The Iron's Under-23s side are back in action this Thursday afternoon (2pm kick-off) when they make the trip to take on West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League Cup group stages.

The game will be played at Hednesford Town's home, which can be located at Keys Park, Hednesford, Cannock WS12 2DZ. We will also have live text coverage on our Twitter feed, which can be accessed by clicking here.

SCENE-SETTER

With Monday's clash against Hull City postponed, the Under-23s' last match was against the Baggies in the same competition at Birkdale Park last Thursday.

United were beaten 2-0 on the day, although put in a good performance against a highly-rated West Brom side coached by ex-Iron forward Deon Burton.

In terms of team news, attacker Jordan Hallam will travel as part of the squad as he looks to step up his recovery from a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, recent signing Devarn Green could also play a part as he looks to build up his match fitness. Midfielder Tom Pugh could also be involved after missing out last week.

Otherwise, it's a similar group to what faced the Baggies last time around, with the team set to be managed by Tony Daws and Steve Thornber on the day.

LAST LINE-UP (v West Brom U23s - 06.02.20)
