West Bromwich Albion Preview vs Brentford (H)

Monday 3rd December, The Hawthorns. 8:00pm. 

Following three wins on the bounce, West Brom will be looking to extend their run at home to Brentford on Monday evening .

Albion have won their midweek clash against Swansea City with a 2-1 win. Both centre backs Ahmed Hegazi and Craig Dawson with the goals.

Opponents, Brentford have struggled since losing boss Dean Smith to Aston Villa. Since then, Smith’s assistant Thomas Frank has taken over the reigns but hasn’t had the instant impact he had wished.

Frank and his side have lost six out of their last seven which leaves them in 18th place after a strong start had seen them as being potential promotion candidates.

The Bees lost their midweek game 3-2 against Sheffield United and are in desperate need for points when they travel to the West Midlands.

Team News:

West Brom:

There is no new injury concerns for Darren Moore. Kyle Bartley is expected to miss out again.

Brentford:

The away side will be without Julian Jeanvier, Marcus Forss, and Said Benrahma. Ollie Watkins and Kamohelo Mokotjo are both doubts. Former Baggie Romaine Sawyers is expected to play a part in the games.

Predicted line-ups:

Albion: Johnstone; Adarabioyo, Dawson, Hegazi, Gibbs; Livermore, Morrison, Phillips; Barnes, Robson-Kanu, Rodriguez.

Brentford: Bentley; Dalsgaard, Konsa, Mepham, Barbet; McEachran, Sawyers; Judge, Macleod, Canos; Maupay.

Prediction:

This is a game between two sides with contrasting form at the moment. Albion should have enough quality to see off Brentford who look low on confidence. I think it’ll be a 3-1 win for Albion under the lights at The Hawthorns. Rodriguez, Phillips and Dawson all getting on the scoresheet.

Boing Boing.
