West Bromwich Albion Preview – Fourth league victory on the bounce for the Baggies?

Slaven Bilic’s West Bromwich Albion moved six points clear at the top of the Championship after the midweek results. The Baggies picked up another win on the road, this time a 2-1 victory over Reading at the Madejski Stadium. Elsewhere, Leeds United were held to a 1-1 draw by Brentford, while Fulham dropped points at Millwall.

After going seven league games without a win – drawing four and losing three – West Brom have secured three vital victories on the bounce. Before winning at Reading on Wednesday, Bilic’s troops had beaten Luton Town 2-0 at The Hawthorns and seen off Millwall by the same scoreline at the Lions’ Den.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score
4/5

(odds taken 1510 GMT, Thursday 13 February)

 
Albion have the best away record in the league by some distance, but their results at The Hawthorns have been mixed. So far, eight clubs have picked up more home points, as the Baggies have won seven, drawn six and lost twice. Still, they will be looking for a home win on Saturday to take them a step closer to the Premier League.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Can the Reds hit back after Tuesday’s shock home defeat?

Last weekend, Sabri Lamouchi’s Nottingham Forest sent out a real signal of intent to their promotion rivals by beating Leeds 2-0 at the City Ground. Tuesday’s home game with struggling Charlton Athletic looked a formality, but Forest fell to a shock 1-0 loss, with Lyle Taylor scoring the only goal of the game. Forest have now lost two of their last three.

Nevertheless, Lamouchi has had a fine first season at the City Ground, guiding the club to 15 wins from 32 Championship games. The Reds currently sit fifth in the table, two points away from second place. They could move into the automatic spots with victory over the leaders this Saturday.
