JIM Magilton confirmed he is looking to start with the same side for the fourth game running and rectify that poor result in October.

He said: “That team deserved to play again, if only to right the wrongs. They played better against Stoke than they did Leeds and, even though they were under more pressure in the Stoke game, they delivered.

“It will be a tough game at Albion and I will expect some professional pride after being beaten five. I don't expect they want that to happen again.

“I expect us to play better than we did then and our away performances have been good so the onus will be on the home team.
