Tony Mowbray has made five changes to his starting lineup for today's clash against West Bromwich Albion from the one that played against Swansea City in midweek.

Jack Rodwell comes into the team at the expense of Darragh Lenihan, who hasn't recovered from the hip injury he suffered with against the Swans on Tuesday night.

Derrick Williams returns at left back in place of Amari'i Bell, whilst Corry Evans drops to the bench and is replaced by Craig Conway.

Joe Rothwell and Kasey Palmer are the other alterations, with Adam Armstrong and Danny Graham both dropping to the bench.
