West Brom vs Stoke City

, KO: 12:00 Dec 17, 2023, The Hawthorns
Stoke City

West Brom continue their push for a playoff finish as they welcome Stoke City to the Hawthorns for a Championship fixture on Sunday. The Baggies have been solid at home and with Stoke struggling at the moment, they will be confident of claiming the win here.

West Brom are coming off a 2-0 victory at Rotherham United in their previous Championship fixture. Following a frustrating first half, they came to life after the break with goals from Grady Diangana and Jed Wallace giving them the win.

The Baggies have been slightly erratic lately, picking up six wins in their last 10 Championship matches. Carlos Corberan’s men are still maintaining their playoff push as they sit fifth on the standings, although the likes of Hull City and Preston North End have been in hot pursuit.

West Brom have also done some good work at the Hawthorns lately and are unbeaten in five of their last six home matches. They have claimed four wins in that run but were beaten 2-1 by Championship leaders Leicester City last time out in front of their fans.

Stoke City travel to the Hawthorns off the back of a 1-1 draw with Swansea City last time out in the Championship. Daniel Johnson struck the opener midway through the second half and they looked to be headed for the win before conceding the equaliser one minute from time.

That result means Stoke City are now winless in their last seven matches, suffering four defeats in that run. They have been on a downward spiral in recent weeks and are now 19th on the standings, just one point above the relegation zone.

Things have been even worse on the road for Stoke City, who have lost their last two Championship away matches. First they were beaten 4-2 by QPR before suffering a 2-1 defeat to Plymouth Argyle in their previous away fixture.
