West Brom 4/5 to beat Huddersfield Town in Friday’s Championship contest

Competition: Championship

Market: West Brom win

Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport

Knowing that every contest now is a must-win encounter, West Brom will make the trip to relegation scrappers Huddersfield on Friday evening.

Starting with the hosts, putting in what was another toothless display and having to settle for a point away at Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, Huddersfield find themselves in the midst of a real relegation scrap. Holding just a three-point buffer over the drop zone and still firmly looking over their shoulder, Danny Cowley’s side have failed to win any of their last four Championship outings and have landed just a single victory since returning from the enforced break. Drawing another blank at Hillsborough on Tuesday, fans around West Yorkshire will be most concerned by their side’s rather glaring issues in front of goal. Now failing to find the net on a single occasion on their four-match winless run, Huddersfield have also gone over 270 minutes without finding the net on home soil.

As for the visitors, watching Brentford pick up a crucial 1-0 win earlier in the week, there is no doubt that every contest for West Brom is a must-win now. Holding just a one-point buffer from slipping out of the automatic spots, Head Coach Slaven Bilić has now seen his side play out back-to-back draws and the pressure is really starting to intensify. While the former West Ham boss might have seen his squad manage to win just one of their last four Championship games away from the Hawthorns, they should be boosted by what is an eye-catching record in West Yorkshire. Including a 2-0 win in their most recent trip to the John Smith’s Stadium, Friday’s guests have landed back-to-back away wins at Huddersfield. With all eyes on them this week, we’re backing the Baggies to make a much-needed return to winning ways.
