Match Preview & Team News
Top of the table meets the very bottom on Tuesday evening as West Bromwich Albion play host to Barnsley in what should be a one-way street all the way at The Hawthorns. The Baggies maintained the two-point cushion at the top of the ladder thanks to a 0-1 victory over Middlesbrough on Saturday at Riverside.
They have now won four of the last five league affairs. The hosts have the second-best attacking record in the division with 22 goals scored in 12 games. They have been flying high at home recently. The team led by Slaven Bilic scored as many as 11 goals in three successive wins at The Hawthorns against Blackburn, Huddersfield, and Cardiff.
The hosts will have a great opportunity to extend such an amazing spell of form in their own backyard as they are now up against a side which claimed no more than one point in five away games in the season. The Tykes have a miserable goal difference of 1-10 in the process. They shipped five goals in the previous away fixture at Preston North End.
A dismal start to the campaign resulted in managerial change as Barnsley appointed Adam Murray as the new head coach. The team held third-placed Swansea City to a 1-1 draw on Saturday with Murray in charge. The trip to West Bromwich will be a much tougher test, though.
It’s been nine years since these two likes last met each other in a competitive affair. They battled it out in a friendly last summer when the Baggies clinched a 2-3 victory on the road.
