Albion unchanged for Villa derby

3 March 2015

Berahino and Ideye fit to start at Villa Park

TONY Pulis named an unchanged starting XI for the third successive match as Albion made the short trip to neighbours Aston Villa (7.45pm ko).

Strikers Saido Berahino and Brown Ideye both overcame the knocks which forced them off in the second half of Saturday's 1-0 win over Southampton in the Barclays Premier League.

It ensured Baggies head coach Pulis was able to stick with the same side who triumphed over Saints and also held Sunderland to a goalless draw at the Stadium of Light.

There was one change on the bench from the weekend as Sebastien Pocognoli returned in place of the injured Callum McManaman.

Albion: Foster, Dawson, McAuley, Lescott, Brunt, Morrison, Yacob, Fletcher, Gardner, Ideye, Berahino.

Subs: Myhill, Wisdom, Pocognoli, Olsson, Baird, Mulumbu, Sessegnon. 

Villa: Guzan, Hutton, Okore, Clark, Lowton, Westwood, Delph, Cleverley, Agbonlahor, N’Zogbia, Benteke.

Subs: Given, Bacuna, Sinclair, Sanchez, Gil, Grealish, Weimann.

Referee: Jon Moss (West Riding)
