Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's visit to the KCOM Stadium
ALBION's Premier League season continues on Saturday as they travel to the KCOM Stadium to face Hull City (ko 3pm).
After flying out of the blocks in August with wins over Leicester and Swansea, Hull have suffered some recent poor form in the Premier League. A precious three points at home to Southampton earlier this month put an end to a six-match losing streak, but last weekend's thumping at the Stadium of Light brought the Tigers back down to earth. That said, Mike Phelan will be looking at the clash with the Baggies as a chance for his side to get back to winning ways and move out of the bottom three.
Last time out
Albion haven't beaten Hull away from home in the league since 2008 when they recorded a 3-1 win in the Championship. James Morrison was on target that day. Some things never change.
Last time out at the then KC Stadium, Graham Dorrans saw his penalty saved as Albion were held to a 0-0 draw.

Albion have no suspensions, but former Tiger Boaz Myhill is unavailable after picking up an ankle injury. Nacer Chadli faces a late fitness test after a minor knee procedure.
Abel Hernandez, Will Keane, Andy Robertson, Moses Odubajo, Greg Luer and Alex Bruce all miss out for Hull through injury.
Albion's last league defeat at Hull was in 1992. With that fixture coming in Division Three, both sides have come a remarkably long way.
Albion drew a blank that day but have found their form in front of goal this season, scoring 16 times in their first 12 games. Hull have only managed ten goals so far, failing to score in half of their Premier League games this season.
