Former Baggies boss Tony Mowbray will be in charge of the visitors tomorrow (27th October).

The fixture will be Mowbray’s first return to The Hawthorns since he departed Albion in 2009.

He spent three years at the club, winning promotion from the Championship in the 2007-08 season before seeing his side relegated the following year.

James Morrison and Chris Brunt – who are both still at the Baggies – were among Mowbray’s signings during his time in charge.

His Blackburn side were promoted for League One last season and have adapted well to life in the Championship, sitting ninth in the table with 21 points from their 14 games so far.

Albion head into the game fourth in the league, two points behind Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Sheffield United who all sit above them on 26 points.
