Bristol City vs West Brom (By: Joey)
Bristol City are up against West Brom at the Ashton Gate Stadium for a match on Tuesday night. This encounter can have a major impact in the play-off race with the two teams occupying the fourth and sixth places. West Brom have the advantage after having managed 70 points compared to the 62 achieved by Bristol, but Lee Johnson’s men have a game in hand.
Bristol dropped two crucial points in the efforts to cement the play-off position after a 2-2 draw with Wigan at home. Wigan were able to come up with a late equaliser to snatch a point from the game.
West Brom’s four-game unbeaten sequence came to an end following a 2-0 loss against Millwall at the Den. This ground continues to be a major problem for visiting teams.
The reverse fixture between West Brom and Bristol produced a 4-2 victory for the Baggies at the Hawthorns. The last meeting between the two clubs at Ashton Gate Stadium was in 2016 when West Brom bagged a 1-0 victory in the FA Cup meeting.
Lee Johnson’s team have done exceedingly well to move into the play-off places and the weekend results were actually a disappointment for Bristol as they could have extended the lead over Derby even further. West Brom’s primary objective will be to preserve momentum going into the play-offs, and a second consecutive defeat will be a major blow for James Shan’s men. On the contrary, West Brom will be glad to return home with an away point. My preview would pick a draw.
