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

West Bromwich Albion were tipped for an instant return to the Premier League before a ball was kicked this season, but the Baggies have found it tough going lately. Valerien Ismael’s men head into this one having won only two of their last eight.

Since a 1-0 win over lowly Reading at The Hawthorns on 11th December, Albion have taken just one point from their last two. After drawing at Barnsley, bottom club Derby got the better of the Baggies last Monday. West Brom have slipped eight points behind leaders Bournemouth after recent results.

Our betting prediction:
West Brom to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1012 GMT, Saturday 1 January)

On the whole, West Brom have been strong at The Hawthorns this season, and the Midlands outfit should strike back with all three points from this one. They are the bookies’ favourites at 11/20.

Cardiff City Preview – Another damaging defeat for the Bluebirds?

Cardiff City returned to action on Thursday with a 3-0 loss to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. That was the Welsh club’s first game since coming from two down to draw 2-2 at Birmingham City on 11th December.

Since a 2-1 victory at Luton Town in late November, Cardiff have taken just one point from a possible nine. Steve Morison’s troops are living dangerously close to the edge, with 22nd-place Peterborough United just three points behind.

This will be the first meeting between the pair at The Hawthorns since October 2019. Back then, Matheus Pereira, Grady Diangana, Charlie Austin and Romaine Sawyers were on target in a 4-2 Albion win.
