West Brom News and Form
As expected, West Brom have looked strong this season. Their two wins in this campaign happened out on the road. Both were a 2-1 successes over Nottingham Forest and then Luton. In their one home game so far this season in the second tier, they played out a 1-1 draw will Millwall. So that’s both teams having scored in all three of their games.
The Baggies will be happy with their goal output, not so much their defence. Grady Diangana was the hero of the day for them with three goals in three minutes out at Luton on the weekend, which saw the Baggies recover from being 1-0 down at the break. West Brom were a good strong home team last season in the division posting a W12 D7 L4 record at the Hawthorns.

Five of the last six meetings have ended in a home win
3 of the last 4 meetings at the Hawthorns have produced at least four goals
Reading News and Form
The Royals had their first taste of success in the new season with a 3-0 home win over Cardiff on the weekend. That was a thumping win for them, and a little surprising too after having suffered back to back defeats against Sheffield Wednesday and Hull. Not only a win but a clean sheet will have been a massive boost for them as well. Especially after having conceded five in their opening two games.
Can they follow it up with anything out of this tough away game? The Royals had a really difficult season in the 2018/19 campaign. They won only two away games (D11 L10) and averaged under a goal per game on their travels. With their loss out at Hull in their one road fixture this season, they need to find their away-touch quickly. Reading finished fifth from bottom in last season’s Championship.
