West Bromwich Albion form
Despite West Brom's usual status as a potential contender for promotion in the Championship, their head coach Carlos Corberan is facing difficulties in the short and long term. There are reports that a clearance sale may be necessary in January if ownership is not changed, which will undoubtedly overshadow their season until the situation is resolved. However, Corberan still needs to deliver positive results on the field to keep West Brom in the second tier of English football. Their recent consecutive draws against Bristol City and Watford can be seen as steps in the right direction, as they have only lost once in their last six matches. Despite possessing the joint-sixth best attacking record in the league,
West Brom finds themselves in the lower half of the table with just nine points from seven games.
West Bromwich Albion Predicted Lineup
Palmer; Ajayi, Kipre, Pieters; Furlong, Yokuslu, Molumby, Townsend; Wallace, Swift; Thomas-Asante
Only one clean sheet has been kept in all competitions during the 2023-24 season, making Millwall confident that they can exploit West Brom's defensive weakness. In their last match, Millwall scored almost half of their total Championship goals for the season in a 3-0 victory against Rotherham United. Prior to that game, Gary Rowett's team had struggled to score more than one goal in a single match this campaign. However, they have maintained a solid defensive record, conceding just eight goals and keeping three clean sheets in seven Championship outings. Despite a mixed start for both teams, they are still within three points of the top six, and a win this weekend could provide the momentum needed for a promotion push.
Millwall Predicted Lineup
Bialkowski; Leonard, Cooper, Wallace; Norton-Cuffy, De Norre, Campbell, Longman; Watmore, Flemming; Bradshaw.
