EFL CHAMPIONSHIP

West Brom vs Cardiff: Preview, Prediction, Team News

Premier League player

West Brom host Cardiff in the EFL Championship on Sunday at the Hawthorns stadium. The hosts will look to clinch all three points and consolidate their position in the top 4.

West Brom is currently placed in the fourth position in the league table with 41 points of 24 games played.

Although Valerian Ismael’s side has struggled a bit of late, winning only two of their last five games. The Albions have lost their last game against Derby County by a goal to nil. So they will surely look for a win to get to the winning ways against Cardiff.

On the other hand, Cardiff City have not been consistent this season. They are currently placed 20th in the league with 22 points of 23 games played.

Steve Morison’s side will be heading into the game after 3-0 loss against Bournemouth last time out. They hope to bounce back with a win against West Brom on Sunday.
