“Dara is the future, and he can be present. Dara is one of the reasons why when I came to the club we didn’t sign another defender. I didn’t want to - why? Because of Dara. I believe in him. He's a player. I love Dara.” - Slaven Bilić on Dara O'Shea.

After spending last season on loan at Exeter City, Dara has been around Albion's first team this season, and played 90 minutes against Millwall in the Carabao Cup earlier this season. O'Shea's next appearance would see him make his league debut for Albion against Brentford in December. Could the FA Cup provide an opportunity for Dara to gain more playing experience?
