West Bromwich Albion will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they host Coventry City in a, EFl championship fixture at the Hawthorns on Friday night. Despite losing their last two games, the hosts are heading into the match as favourites, having won four of their last five second tier games. Meanwhile, Coventry managed to get the better of relegation battlers Huddersfield Town in their last outing on Saturday. The victory helped the Sky Blues to move 13th spot in the English second tier standings, having collected 38 points from 28 games, while the Baggies are sitting three places above them, with 41 points to their name. 

West Brom boss Catlos Corberan, who took charge of the team in October, has done a fabulous job thus far. Since the resumption of competitive action following the World Cup break, the Baggies have recorded six wins from their last eight league-games. Their latest second tier match against league-leaders Burnley ended in a 2-1 defeat despite taking the lead through Darnell Furlong’s 7th-minute strike. After that, the Baggies got thrashed 3-0 by Bristol City in the FA Cup fourth round match last Saturday. A victory on Friday will help West Brom move as high as the fifth spot in the table, for the time being. 

Coventry City, on the other hand, ended their seven game winless streak across all competition last Saturday, after defeating Huddersfield Town. The Sky Blues netted twice against the Terriers without reply, courtesy of second half strikes from Gustavo Hamer and Kasey Palmer. It was their 10th league-win of the season. The back-three of Luke McNally, Callum Doyle and Jonathan Panzo did a fine job to help Mark Robin’s side earn their first clean sheet in five outings. The result helped Coventry to close the gap on Blackburn, who are occupying the sixth and final playoff spot, to just five points.
