West Brom vs Coventry City

, KO: 20:00 Mar 1, 2024, The Hawthorns
Coventry City

West Brom will be looking to snap out of an erratic run of results as they host Coventry City in a Friday night Championship fixture. Coventry have caught the eye lately but with their away form not up to scratch, the Baggies will fancy their chances of coming out on top.

West Brom are coming off a 1-1 draw with Hull City in their previous Championship fixture. They fought back from a goal down, with Darnell Furlong getting the equaliser three minutes from the break.

That result is part of an erratic run for West Brom, who have picked up three wins from their last six matches. However the good news is that Carlos Corberan’s men have lost just once in that run and remain in the mix for the promotion playoffs as they sit fifth on the table.

Something that will give West Brom confidence heading into Friday’s clash is their home form having won five of their last six Championship matches at the Hawthorns. However, the only defeat in that run came in their previous home fixture as they were beaten 2-0 by Southampton.

Coventry City will travel to the Hawthorns on a high after claiming a 5-0 victory 9ver Maidstone to progress in the FA Cup. Ellis Simms netted a hat-trick while Fabio Tavares grabbed a brace in a comfortable victory.

The Sky Blues have lost just once in their last six matches across all competitions, claiming four wins in that run. However, they were beaten 3-0 at home by Preston North End in their previous Championship fixture.

Coventry City claimed a 1-0 victory at Stoke City in their previous away fixture. However that result ended a run of three away matches without a win for Mark Robbins’ men who have found things difficult on their recent travels.
