West Brom in contact with Bilic replacements

West Brom boss Slaven Bilic is on the brink of the sack tomorrow.

The Daily Mail says Bilic is under mounting pressure as West Brom consider ending his 16-month reign as manager and could take action after Sunday's clash with Tottenham.

West Brom have sounded out targets about their interest in taking over and, if they do dispense with Bilic after Spurs' visit, the international break would give them time to find his successor.

Bilic is stoical about his vulnerable position. 'I have been in football a long time and the pressure is always there," he said.

"I thought we were going to do better. Are we rock bottom? No. We are in the relegation zone by one point.

"Am I happy about that? No. But are we going to panic and lose belief? No. We have to be ready for a gun fight and to get away from the situation."
