PREVIEW: West Bromwich Albion v Hull City

Buoyed by the point won against Everton - but for late drama it could've seen it turn into all three - City's performances don't deserve to be knocked. But, there is no escaping the fact that a genuine lack of quality and cutting edge up front is the real reason why current form is not being fully rewarded.

Baggies v Tigers



January needs to see a proven striker who can score at Premier League level and an equally competent full back join the ranks as a bare minimum. Phelan will be lucky if he can land anything, given the Allams disregard for this club, so a long winter ahead beckons. A small silver lining then, that Ahmed Elmohamady and Dieumerci both have permission to stay for one last match with the Baggies, before jetting off to the African Cup of Nations - and no further injury problems have come from the Everton match two days ago.

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis has a selection dilemma to resolve up front. One time Tiger target Hal Robson-Kanu is hoping to keep his place in the team after netting the winner in the away game at Southampton, but top scorer Salomon Rondon will be pushing hard for a return to the side. Saido Berahino will be held back from that choice to improve fitness.
