West Brom vs Preston in the Championship on Jan 26. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

West Brom vs Preston in the Championship on Jan 26. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

The pieces are set for the next fixture between West Brom and Preston in the Championship as both will want to continue striving for those all important points. So far this season, West Brom have been continuing their big push to return to the Premier League, and have been doing this quite successfully. The Baggies currently occupy 5th and within touching distance of QPR, Blackburn, and Bournemouth. However, the Baggies have also seen a lapse in their recent form which has certainly impacted their chances of gaining automatic promotion.

Preston are further down the table in 15th position with their recent run of form is about on par with West Brom’s. Despite the 10-place difference in table position, Preston come into this game on the back of one defeat in five.

West Brom and Preston to Draw

The current prediction is that the game between West Brom and Preston will likely end in a draw, with both squads looking evenly matched heading into this fixture. After an unbeaten start to their season, the Baggies have been sliding down the table and cannot afford to drop any more points than they already have. West Brom have only managed three wins from their last 11 matches, and have managed to scrounge together a handful of points from five draws since the start of November 2021.

Equally, Preston do not look in any more of a position to walk away with the win. The previous meeting between these two sides ended in a 1-1 draw, and North End have bagged three draws in their last six games as well, making another draw even more likely. Additionally, Preston drew five times in a row in September 2021. The Draw can be found priced at 14/5

West Brom form, squad news, opinion

West Brom’s form has dipped considerably since the start of the 2021/22 season. Where the Baggies had a very promising start to the campaign, they have since dropped in the table after a series of draws and defeats. However, they still remain within touching distance of the top teams and luck could still spin in their favour with much of the season still to play. West Brom will be entering their fixture against Preston on the back of two draws to Barnsley and Cardiff City and two losses to Derby and QPR in their last five. Incidentally, the side has failed to win against three struggling teams in Derby, Barnsley and Cardiff.

The Baggies have a couple of players out and will be unavailable for their match against Preston. Centre-back Dara O’Shea has been out since September 2021 with an ankle fracture and another centre-back in Semi Ajayi has been called up for international duty for Nigeria in the African Cup of Nations. The two central midfielders Alex Mowatt and Jayson Molumby are both at risk of suspension as they have four yellow cards each to their names.

West Brom cannot afford to continue dropping points but are their few signs that they are truly over their slump in form. The Baggies have missed out on some big opportunities this season and have shown that they can at the very least draw against sides below them in the table.

Preston form, squad news, opinion

The current form of North End is one that is only marginally better than their opponents. Preston have picked up points from their most recent games, with two wins to very close competition at home to Barnsley and away to Stoke, and two draws at home to Birmingham and Sheffield United before a narrow defeat to Swansea last time out.

Preston only have one player out who is unlikely to make an appearance for their game against West Brom, and that is right-back Matthew Olosundae who picked up a groin injury in early December 2021.

So far this season the team is picking up a lot of points by nabbing draws and settling for the single point. It seems to be working for them at the moment as they are likely to finish the season in the mid-table.

History

The history between these two clubs is long and varied, but their most recent game in September 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw at the Deepdale Stadium. Prior to this, West Brom claimed four wins against Preston between 2018 and 2020, with the greatest margin of victory being a 4-1 in April 2019.

About the Venue

The Hawthorns is a stadium well-known by all, and has a deep history spanning from the turn of the 20th century as it was opened in 1900. The ground has a capacity of 26,688 and was most recently renovated in 2001 when alterations were made to the East Stand.

Conclusion

Overall it is likely that we will witness a draw between West Brom and Preston on Jan 26. 2022. The two sides appear to be evenly matched, and their most recent game is telling of how this next game could potentially end. There is not much separating the two sides going into this fixture, with recent form dictating a draw is likely to be the outcome.
