West Bromwich vs QPR by Luke
West Bromwich Albion couldn't do much more in the previous game, when the team visited Manchester City and generally were limited to a very passive role, admitting the 3:0 defeat in the end. Not only that, but they stood with a man less from second minute when McAuley got red carded, so everyone can only imagine how passive they had to play.
Citizens did their job quite professionally, taking a double lead already at the halftime, with goals from Bony in 27th and Fernando in 40th minute, while Silva's goal sealed the victory in 77th minute. This defeat was anyway very expected, so nobody will be downhearted with it, while the team continues their struggle to avoid any complications regarding their status in Premier League. Currently, the team is doing fine with eight points more than the firstly relegated side. Today's aim is to get a victory against a side that struggles to avoid relegation and in case of a positive result, they would feel almost completely secure till the end of the season. Central defender Craig Dawson (20/2) is suspended for this one, while Chris Brunt and Claudio Yacob are now both back available following serving their suspensions.
QPR counted their fifth defeat in a row after a 1:2 defeat at home to Everton two weeks ago. The season is not finished for them, as the team has only four points less than safely placed sides, but their current form and results are more than worrying at the moment. No doubt that the team has to change something really soon in order to stay competitive in a relegation battle.
That game against Everton was another illustration that the team can give a decent performance during ninety minutes, but also that they lack experience, quality and more determination and focus in the most decisive moments of the game. Neither of the teams looked very offensive during the match, but the visiting side simply used their own chances created. Away from home, the situation is even worse for them, as the team has arguably the worst away record in the league with one victory and thirteen defeats. Darnell Furlong is a doubt at right-back but Mauricio Isla is back fit and should return to the starting lineup. Central defender Richard Dunne (17/0) and offensive midfielder Leroy Fer (18/3) are both out injured.
Playing at home WBA has all the chances to secure three pointer here. Against out of form and terrible away side, they will surely have plenty of chances to score and all they have to do, is to be averagely efficient in this one and the victory should come, easy or hard.
