West Bromwich Albion Preview vs Blackburn (H)

Saturday 27th October 2018, The Hawthorns, 3:00pm.

West Bromwich Albion head into another top of the table clash on Saturday as they host Blackburn Rovers.

The Baggies are in desperate need for three points after abysmal performances against both Wigan Athletic and on Wednesday night against Derby County.

Albion welcome back former boss Tony Mowbray back to The Hawthorns on Saturday.

Mowbray won the league with West Brom back in 2008 and his side have started brightly this year after winning promotion from League One.

His side are currently sitting in 9th position in a congested top half of the Sky Bet Championship.

Team News:

West Brom:

Darren Moore will be hoping that injuries to Dwight Gayle and Kieran Gibbs are not too serious as they were both taken off at half time in Albion defeat to Derby. Jake Livermore will return from a one match suspension.

Blackburn Rovers:

Dominic Samuel and Ben Gladwin remain long-term absentees. Danny Graham should be fit. Ryan Nyambe could return after injury.

Predicted Line-ups.

Albion: Johnstone; Dawson, Adarabioyo, Bartley, Gibbs;  Brunt, Livermore; Phillips, Barnes, Rodriguez; Gayle.

Rovers: Raya; Bennett, Lenihan, Mulgrew, Bell; Evans, Smallwood, Reed; Dack, Armstrong, Graham.

Prediction:

This will be another really tough game for Albion. Moore’s side really need a result following two poor results. I think The Baggies will react and scrape a 1-0 victory through a Dwight Gayle goal.

Boing Boing.
