West Bromwich Albion Preview vs Hull City (A)

Saturday 3rd November, KCOM Stadium. 3pm.

West Brom head to struggling Hull City on Saturday looking to stop the rot following three games without a win.

The Baggies have picked up just one point in those three, with defeats coming against Wigan and Derby.

Darren Moore’s men still find themselves just four points off the top of the Championship as up to 10 teams are currently fighting it out for a play-off spot.

Albion’s opponents currently sit 23rd in the league but did get a needed win away to Bolton Wanderers last week.

Team news:

West Brom:

The Baggies will be hoping for no injuries heading into Saturday’s encounter. Dwight Gayle, Kieran Gibbs and Ahmed Hegazi are all expected to be back for West Brom in a game they will be desperate to win. Kyle Bartley will miss the game though through suspension.

Hull City:

The hosts will be with the returning defensive partnership of Jordy de Wijs and Reece Burke who both missed last weeks game through injury. The Tigers have confirmed that the game will again come too soon for Evandro and Jon Toral, with James Weir also unavailable.

Predicted line-ups:

Albion: Johnstone; Adarbioyo, Dawson, Hegazi; Phillips, Morrison, Livermore, Gibbs; Barnes; Gayle, Rodriguez.

Hull City: Marshall;  Lichaj, Elphick, McKenzie, Kingsley; Bowen, Batty, Irvine,  Henriksen, Grosicki; Campbell.

Prediction:

Albion should have enough to see themsleves through this game. They have struggled away from home this season but Moore’s men will be desperate to get all three points and I believe they will edge it 2-1 with Rodriguez and Phillips scoring.

Boing Boing.
