West Bromwich Albion preview vs Millwall

Saturday 22nd September, The Hawthorns. 3pm. 

West Bromwich Albion head into their home game with Millwall on Saturday in high spirits after their emphatic 4-2 victory over play-off rivals Bristol City.

The Championship top goalscorers know that they can make it six home wins in a row against a struggling Millwall side.

The Lions have so far not replicated their form from last campaign and are struggling in 21st place, with just one win to their name.

The last time the two sides met was way back in 2004 where the they played out a 1-1 draw at The Den.

The Baggies will be hoping that the attacking force of Jay Rodriguez, Dwight Gayle and Harvey Barnes will be enough to overcome the visitors.

Team news:

West Bromwich Albion:

Albion will head into the game with no fresh injury concerns. They are expected to keep the same 11 that took on Bristol City on Tuesday night with Gareth Barry continuing in central midfield.

Millwall:

Saturday could see a start for Millwall striker Steve Morison after he made an impact off the bench in midweek. the Lions have no new injury concerns with boss Neil Harris having a full squad to pick from.

Predicted Line-ups:

West Bromwich Albion: Johnstone; Dawson, Hegazi, Bartley; Phillips, Livermore, Barry, Gibbs; Barnes; Gayle, Rodriguez.

Millwall: Amos; McLaughlin, Wallace, Cooper, Meredith; J Wallace, Williams, Leonard, O’Brien; Gregory, Morison.

Prediction:

With Albion scoring for fun at the moment, I can only see the result going one way on Saturday. With Millwall struggling it may even be the first time the Baggies keep a clean sheet this season.

So, I’m going for a 3-0 Albion win with goals from the front three, Barnes, Gayle and Rodriguez.

Boing Boing.
