PREVIEW: West Bromwich Albion v Hull City

Well, in all honesty, Hull City have probably supped up at the last chance saloon, but, while the mathematicians say it's still possible, the Tigers have a duty towards the competition, to give it their all at West Bromwich Albion and try and breathe life into their flagging play-off ambitions. And if it doesn't happen, The Vine is still a class pub to visit pre and post match, anyway.

Boing Boing into the play-offs?

It's nothing short of a minor miracle what Nigel Adkins, his staff and the team have accomplished this season, so there will be little bleating from the fans if this flickering top six flight of fancy ultimately fizzles out. Really, we had no business being in this race at all if the league table back in October is anything to go by. Yet, there is hope and City travel to the Baggies with no fresh injury concerns, meaning Stephen Kingsley is likely to be the only first team player sidelined.

West Bromwich Albion have appointed Jimmy Shan to be their first team coach until the end of the season after four wins out of the past six outings as caretaker. There are no such play-off concerns for the home team who remain all but assured of a place barring a catastrophic run of results. The Baggies could welcome back winger Matt Phillips after a recent spell out with an ankle injury.
