Match preview

Two sides in the midst of altogether contrasting spells of form are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at The Hawthorns on Thursday, December 29th.

The matchup in question will see on-fire West Bromwich Albion play host to a Preston North End side majorly struggling of late.

Beginning with the former, West Brom, of course, have enjoyed a surge up the table in England’s 2nd tier over the course of the last couple of months.

After racking up a trio of successive victories heading into the World Cup break, the Baggies have followed up with a further three wins from four since.

The latest came last time out, when Carlos Corberan’s troops made altogether short work of Bristol City.

Goals on the part of Matthew Phillips and Brandon Thomas-Asante gave rise to a 2-0 final scoreline at Ashton Gate, guiding West Brom to the heights of 14th in the table.

After so recently finding themselves in the thick of the relegation scrap, the Baggies, in turn, now trail the promotion playoff pace by just three points.

And Corberan and co. will no doubt be confident of putting further distance between themselves and the drop zone come the full-time whistle at The Hawthorns on Thursday night.

This comes with their upcoming opponents having enjoyed an altogether less fruitful go of things over the last couple of weeks.

Three of Preston’s last four outings have culminated in defeat, dealing a heavy blow to the club’s lofty promotion hopes.

After looking as though they had bounced back courtesy of a remarkable 4-1 drubbing of high-flying Blackburn Rovers, the Lilywhites followed up an ensuing loss at the hands of struggling Queens Park Rangers with an even more alarming result last time out.

This came as a home meeting with bottom of the table Huddersfield Town saw Ryan Lowe’s troops surrender a late advantage on their way to a 2-1 defeat.

Preston, as a result, have slipped to mid-table, in the knowledge that a defeat next time out would see West Brom leapfrog them in the standings in England’s 2nd tier.

And we at 101 are backing precisely that to come to fruition, with Corberan and co. looking heavy favourites to make it seven wins from eight on Thursday night.
