West Brom – Preston Preview

  • Three late goals saw West Bromwich Albion beat Peterborough at the weekend (3-0), and finally get their first win of 2022. The ‘Baggies’ retained their fifth place position as a result and continued their unbeaten Championship home campaign (W8, D5), joining Liverpool as the only teams still unbeaten in home league action across England’s top-four divisions.
  • U.S. cap and seven million pound man Daryl Dike made his first WBA start in that win, only to be subbed off injured in the second half. Now expected to miss this game, it was hoped Dike would aid WBA’s automatic promotion push and help solve their scoring woes at home, where the Baggies netted under 1.5 goals in the six competitive games at The Hawthorns prior to that Peterborough win (W2, D3, L1), whilst failing to score at all before half-time in the last seven at this venue.
  • Although they’ve struggled to hit the net at times, at least WBA have a clear goal in mind. Opponents Preston North End, on the other hand, sit in the midtable mire and look destined to miss out on the playoffs yet again, having last made the Championship’s top six back in 2008/09.
  • Manager Ryan Lowe, who was appointed in December, admitted in the wake of Preston’s 1-0 weekend loss at Swansea that he was still ‘learning about the players game-by-game’. But with Preston now winless in their last three Championship matches (D2, L1), and having conceded the opener in six straight competitive away games, the Deepdale faithful will hope the learning process can be sped up as Preston have lost 11 straight away meetings against WBA, in a run that started back in 1980!
  • Key battle: Although he scored WBA’s second strike at the weekend, five of Karlan Grant’s last seven Championship strikes were match openers. He’ll look to cause early havoc against Preston keeper Daniel Iversen, who’s now gone 12 games without a clean sheet.
  • Hot stat: WBA have scored an average of 2.5 first-half goals per game across their last five home H2Hs.
