West Bromwich Albion Preview – Another comfortable home win for the Baggies?

West Bromwich Albion took another big step towards the top flight with an impressive 2-0 win over Preston North End at The Hawthorns in midweek. The Lilywhites are no pushovers, but goals from Hal Robson-Kanu and Jake Livermore proved to be enough to give the Baggies a comfortable win. That followed on nicely from last weekend’s emphatic 3-0 victory at Bristol City.

West Brom are unbeaten in three on home turf. Most of Slaven Bilic’s problems this season have come at The Hawthorns, but Albion have beaten Stoke City and Preston (both 2-0) and drawn with Nottingham Forest (2-2) on home soil in recent weeks. West Brom have been beaten just twice on their own patch in league action this term.

Our betting prediction:
West Brom to win both halves

The Midlands outfit will be on the lookout for another three points this weekend. With games running out, West Brom – who have recovered expertly well from a mid-season blip – are seemingly on their way back to the Premier League. In truth, the leaders should have no problems in this one.

Wigan Athletic Preview – Can the Latics’ superb form continue at the weekend?

Wigan Athletic are fighting for their Championship lives, but they are making a real fist of it at the moment. Paul Cook’s men are unbeaten in four (winning two, drawing two) and have lost only one of their past seven in the Championship.

After a narrow home defeat to Preston, Wigan responded with back-to-back 2-2 draws with Middlesbrough and Cardiff City. They followed that up with impressive wins over Millwall and Reading, scoring four and conceding none.
