Graeme Lee's side were beaten in the Premier League Cup last time out by Blackburn Rovers, and a four-match unbeaten streak in the PL2 was brought to a halt by Manchester United at the Riverside a couple of weeks ago. 

Our U23s currently sit fourth in the PL2 standings - level on points with Stoke City - while today's opponents are hot on their heels a point behind in fifth. 

The Baggies have climbed their way up the table with an impressive run of form, unbeaten in their previous six fixtures in the league and Premier League Cup. 

The young Boro side kick-off at 1pm today at West Brom's training ground.
