West Brom v Bristol City Championship Preview, 18th September 8.00pm
West Brom has made steady progress so far this season in the Championship but will be looking for a little bit more as they start the midweek action in eighth place. Bristol City has hit top form with a four-match winning streak going and will prove to be a stern test for the Baggies at the Hawthorns. Read our West Brom v Bristol City betting tips for more.

West Brom News and Form
West Brom haven’t had a bad season but they have just struggled to get a good stretch of consistency going in the division. They are W3 D1 L1 in their last five games so it is pretty decent from them. They have won their last two home games, scoring nine goals in total in those two fixtures against QPR and Stoke. The concern for the Baggies really is that they haven’t taken a clean sheet yet this season and both teams to score is at 8/11 odds for the game* (betting odds taken from September 17th, 2018 at 11:00 pm).
Four of their seven games in the Championship this season have ended over 2.5 goals and that’s probably an option worth looking at for this one. Over 2.5 goals is at 9/10 odds* (betting odds taken from September 17th, 2018 at 11:00 pm). All three of their fixtures at the Hawthorns have done that one. They could well have Tyrone Mings in action for the first time this season following his signing. Over the weekend they picked up a draw against the struggling Birmingham and the Baggies probably played their worst game of the season, being dreadful in possession. If they don’t step it up then they could be at risk.
Bristol City News and Form
The Robin have strung together a four-match winning streak in the league and have flown up the table. They have scored nine unanswered goals in that sequence as well. They are actually unbeaten on the road with a W2 D1 record and both wins in that sequence of away games have ended with a clean sheet for them. We are not fancying them to get a clean sheet on the board in this one a 2-1 win for City is at 12/1 odds* (betting odds taken from September 17th, 2018 at 11:00 pm) and will have some appeal in this one considering how well they are playing.
They took a narrow win over Sheffield United on the weekend and will likely send out the same starting eleven as well. Bristol City have Andreas Weimann in hot scoring form for them with five goals to his name this season. He is at 13/5 odds in the anytime goalscorer market for the game* (betting odds taken from September 17th, 2018 at 11:00 pm). This would be a big marker laid down by the Robins if they can make it five on the bounce.
West Brom v Bristol City Head to Head
The last time these two were together was in early 2016 when they met in the FA Cup. West Brom won the replay 1-0 out on the road. Their last league meeting was back in the 2009/10 Championship season when they traded home wins. From the four previous Championship meetings between the two clubs, there have been three home wins and a draw. The Baggies are undefeated in their last five home games against the Robins, winning three.
Who will win – West Brom v Bristol City Predictions
We are going to roll with the draw in the match outright here. West Brom can’t be as poor as they were against Birmingham last weekend, and Bristol City carry a good enough threat, but there will be easier away games than this for them. Draw.
