West Bromwich Albion News and Form – Another victory for the Championship leaders?

Charlie Austin came off the bench last weekend at Birmingham City with the Baggies 2-1 down. Austin scored two late goals to fire West Brom to a crucial 3-2 victory at St Andrew’s. With Leeds only managing to draw 3-3 at home with Cardiff City, Albion moved two points clear at the top.

Brentford News and Form – Can the in-form Bees claim a surprise win at The Hawthorns?

Brentford head to the Midlands having won three of their last four. After narrowly losing at Sheffield Wednesday, the Bees secured back-to-back home wins over Cardiff and west London rivals Fulham. They also walloped Luton Town 7-0 at Griffin Park recently.

The Bees are beginning to find the winning formula at home, but Thomas Frank’s men have lost their last two on the road. In fact, Brentford have been beaten six times away from home, with only Stoke City, Wigan Athletic, Barnsley and Luton losing more.

Brentford are certainly a very capable outfit these days. Their recent run of results has lifted them all the way up to fourth. Can the Londoners cause an upset at the home of the current Championship table-toppers this weekend?

West Bromwich Albion vs Brentford Predictions

West Bromwich Albion win: The Baggies have without doubt been the most consistent side in the Championship this season. After losing at Leeds, Albion licked their wounds and got back to winning ways instantly, going on to win nine of the following 12.

Despite their fantastic form, West Brom have yet to keep a clean sheet at home this season. Their last regular league shutout at The Hawthorns came all the way back in March. With that in mind, check out the tempting price of 3/1 for the Baggies to win and both teams to score.

Charlie Austin is a deadly striker at this level. The 30-year-old has had to wait patiently for his chances this season, but Austin has certainly produced when called upon. Albion’s No. 15 has scored six goals in his last five games. Put some money on Austin to score first on Saturday at 9/2.
