West Brom vs Southampton

, KO: 20:00 Feb 16, 2024, The Hawthorns
Southampton

After losing for the first time since September, Southampton will be targeting a swift return to winning ways as they face West Brom in a Friday night Championship fixture. The Baggies have picked up their form in recent weeks and can hold out for a draw against the Saints.

West Brom are coming off a 2-0 victory over Cardiff City in their previous Championship fixture. They were comfortable for much of the encounter with goals in each half from Michael Johnston and Andreas Weimann earning them the win.

That result means West Brom are now unbeaten in their last three matches, claiming two wins in that run. Carlos Corberan’s men are still in the mix for the promotion playoffs as they sit fifth on the table, four points clear of seventh placed Hull City.

At the heart of West Brom’s recent good form is a solid record at the Hawthorns. They have lost just once in their last 10 Championship matches, claiming eight wins in that run.

Southampton were beaten 3-1 at Bristol City last time out in the Championship as they ended a 35 -match unbeaten run across all competitions. They were not at their best and fell three goals down before Adam Armstrong struck an injury time consolation.

Given Southampton’s lengthy unbeaten run, manager Russell Martin will consider that result a blip and will be keen to make a swift return to wining ways. The good news for the Saints is that the defeat did not affect their position on the standings as they remain third.

Southampton’s unbeaten run also includes a fine record on their travels as Tuesday’s defeat was their first in 13 matches. However, there have been quite a few draws in that run as they have been held six times on the road.

How the bookies view it

Southampton have the edge among the bookies and are priced at 7/5 by Coral to claim the win. A victory for West Brom is valued at 21/10 by William Hill while Paddy Power is offering odds of 5/2 for a draw.

Players to watch

Andreas Weimann has caught the eye for West Brom since joining from Bristol City in January. The forward has scored in two of the last three matches and is priced at 7/2 with BetVictor to get on the score sheet.
