Tony Pulis faces his former side as Boro look to continue their excellent start to the Championship season
Tony Pulis comes up against his former club as his Middlesbrough side face West Brom at the Riverside Stadium.
He was dismissed as Baggies boss last season in a season where they ended up getting relegated to the Championship.
After a slow start, West Brom look to have hit their stride after thrashing QPR 7-1 last time out.
But they will face a stern test in Boro, who are unbeaten and looking like promotion contenders.

This is the Championship’s Friday night offering on August 24.
