Two changes for Villa cup clash

7 March 2015

Olsson and Myhill recalled at Villa Park (5.30pm ko)

ALBION made two changes for today’s FA Cup quarter-final at Aston Villa from the side who started their Barclays Premier League meeting in midweek.

Baggies captain Darren Fletcher is cup-tied and therefore ineligible for the encounter, with Jonas Olsson stepping in to make his first appearance since September having fully recovered from an Achilles injury.

Goalkeeper Boaz Myhill also came into Albion’s starting XI in place of Ben Foster, who was on the bench at Villa Park.

The Throstles go head-to-head with Villa for a place in the semi-finals of the world’s oldest domestic cup competition.

Albion: Myhill, Dawson, McAuley, Lescott, Olsson, Brunt, Morrison, Yacob, Gardner, Berahino, Ideye. 

Subs: Foster, Wisdom, Pocognoli, Baird, Mulumbu, Sessegnon, McManaman.

Villa: Given, Lowton, Okore, Clark, Bacuna, Westwood, Delph (c), Cleverley, Sinclair, Agbonlahor, N’Zogbia.

Subs: Guzan, Weimann, Sanchez, Gil, Grealish, Kinsella, Calder.

Referee: Anthony Taylor (Cheshire)
