It already feels like the weekend has started in a manic way - with the arrival of right back Pipa on a season long loan.

I'd say it is highly unlikely the full back plays this afternoon and it is hard to see Carlos Corberan moving too far away from the side that has given him success in the last two games.

The major doubt is Semi Ajayi, who is touch and go, and if he does miss out the simple option would be to throw in Kyle Bartley.

Caleb Taylor remains at the club, having not been one of the youngsters to head out on loan on deadline day, so he could be someone Corberan turns to.

But given his experience, the fact he has featured when for Corberan, Bartley would be the most likely replacement.

Aside from that, for me Albion remain unchanged. There will undoubtedly be calls for Jeremy Sarmiento to start given last week's impressive cameo.
