West Bromwich Albion vs Middlesbrough match preview
Two of the Championship’s most high-profile clubs are set to lock horns as part of the 4th round of fixtures this Saturday, August 26th.
The matchup in question will see West Bromwich Albion act as hosts, in a meeting with Middlesbrough.
Beginning with the former, West Brom, for their part, are fresh off something of a hit-and-miss start to the campaign.
The Baggies, to this point, have managed four points from an available nine, by way of one win, one draw, and one defeat.
After being condemned to an opening day downing at the hands of Blackburn Rovers, Carlos Corberan’s troops were subsequently sent packing from the EFL Cup by Stoke City, too.
Since, though, they have fared better, first securing a maiden victory of the term at the expense of Swansea City.
Then, last time out, a trip to Elland Road saw Brandon Thomas-Asante’s finish early in the 2nd-half prove enough for a credible share of the spoils.
The Baggies, in turn, will head into this afternoon’s action hopeful of making it three successive outings without defeat.
And Corberan and co. will likely be confident in their chances of managing precisely that, up against a Middlesbrough outfit looking completely out of sorts at present.
After impressing en route to a playoff promotion spot in 2022/23, Boro have since fallen off in alarming fashion, to the tune of just one point from their opening three fixtures of the season.
An opening day defeat to Millwall was followed in turn by a three-goal drubbing at Coventry City, the since-departed Chuba Akpom’s absence sorely felt in the final third.
Last weekend, Michael Carrick’s men then set about securing a much-needed bounce-back result, in a home meeting with fellow strugglers Huddersfield Town.
After falling behind early in the 2nd-half, however, Hayden Hackney’s finish just beyond the hour mark proved enough only for a share of the spoils.
Middlesbrough, as a result, find themselves sitting 2nd from bottom in the Championship table.
So, all of this considered, how do we at 101 envision Saturday’s action playing out at The Hawthorns?
Hosts West Brom, for obvious reasons, should be considered the favourites, but we would not be shocked to see Boro ultimately battle their way to a 2nd successive point.
