West Bromwich Albion Preview – Will the Baggies get back to winning ways?

Slaven Bilic’s West Bromwich Albion have fared better on the road this season, with 39 of their 70 points coming on their travels. Having said that, only seven teams have picked up more home points.

Leeds are a point ahead of the Baggies in the race for the Championship title. More importantly, though, Bilic’s boys are currently six points above third place with nine matches to play. West Brom have had a superb season so far, winning 19, drawing 13 and losing only five of 37 league matches.

Our betting prediction:
West Brom to win both halves

(odds taken 1410 GMT, Friday 19 June)

Despite their lofty league position, Albion will be looking for their first win in four league and cup fixtures on Saturday. Before the enforced break, the Baggies lost 1-0 at home to Wigan Athletic before drawing 0-0 with Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. In between, West Brom were beaten 3-2 by Newcastle United in the Emirates FA Cup.

Albion have only won two of nine at home in all competitions, but they are the strong favourites to put a big three points on the board this weekend. This should be a comfortable home victory.

Birmingham City Preview – Can the Blues extend unbeaten away league record to eight?

Birmingham City have been hard to beat away from home, losing just once on the road in Championship action since November. However, they did lose 1-0 at Leicester City in the FA Cup in their previous away fixture.

Before the break, Birmingham lost 3-1 at home to Reading. The Blues were unbeaten in ten before that, although six of those ended in draws. The Blues are eight points above the bottom three and nine points behind the play-off places. Suffice to say, City should be plying their trade in the Championship next season.

He has had one or two bright moments in the Midlands, but it’s been a frustrating season on the whole. Nevertheless, Birmingham will be hoping for a strong finish to their 19-20 campaign.

These two were involved in a thriller in the reverse match at St Andrew’s back in December. Birmingham led twice thanks to goals from Lukas Jutkiewicz and Harlee Dean. However, Charlie Austin had the last laugh, coming off the bench with 20 minutes to go to bag a brace and give the Baggies a memorable 3-2 win at the home of their rivals.
