Market: West Brom win to nil
Odds: 2/1 @ Bet 365
Still drastically struggling at the back end of the season, Birmingham will travel to a revitalized Hawthorns on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while many were surprised to have seen Darren Moore fired from his role at West Brom last month the Baggies have shown some signs of improvement. Holding a commanding 10-point buffer from slipping out of the playoff positions, caretaker boss James Shan saw his temporary side impress in their 1-0 win away at Brentford prior to the international break. With their sights firmly set on booking an immediate return to the Premier League, fans around the Hawthorns will be most impressed by their recent defensive stability. Saturday’s visitors have recorded back to back clean sheets, something they had not previously managed all season.
As for the visitors, while West Brom might be enjoying a late bounce, the same cannot be said for Birmingham. Slumping to a 1-0 loss away at Preston prior to the international break, the Blues have lost their last four Championship matches on the bounce and their form in the final third will be a growing concern for former Swansea boss Gary Monk. Friday’s visitors have not registered a single goal in any of their four defeats, a run that stems over 400 minutes of action. Also losing their last two matches on the road and failing to score in those pair of defeats, we’re backing another tough nights work for Birmingham.
Bet: West Brom 2/1 to beat Birmingham to nil in Friday’s Championship clash @ Bet 365
