The stats behind our West Brom vs Bristol City predictions:

  • West Brom are without a clean sheet in each of their last four Championship matches, despite going unbeaten during that time.
  • Bristol City kept a shutout in their 1-0 win against Swansea last week, but that only ended a run of nine straight games without one across all competitions.
  • Michael Johnston has scored West Brom’s first goal of the game in each of their last three matches.

Can West Brom consolidate their place in the promotion playoffs?

Though their bouncing between divisions has slowed somewhat in recent years, West Brom are still known as the ultimate yoyo team and this season, they’re doing their best to ‘yo’ back up into the top flight.

The Baggies are currently enjoying a run of just one defeat in their last nine Championship matches to sit fifth in the table, opening up a five-point gap between themselves and Hull in seventh.

That is by no means an unassailable lead and with so much football still to play, West Brom must keep standards high to book their place in the playoffs.

However, Hull aren’t in action again until the 29th of March, meaning a win here would extend their lead over the Tigers to eight points, which would certainly score a huge mental victory over their rivals.
