Preview: West Bromwich Albion

City take on high-flying West Brom in a televised mid-week encounter at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies - defeated only once all season - were top of the Sky Bet Championship at the time of writing, though their position as table toppers was under threat by Leeds United who sat two points behind prior to facing Reading on Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, City are breathing down the necks on those in the play-off places, sitting joint-fourth alongside Fulham, Nottingham Forest and Swansea.

And the Robins head to The Hawthorns in good form, beaten on the road only once all season and currently enjoying a five-game unbeaten streak.

Can they make it six on Wednesday?

Word from the camp

 

Bailey Wright made his first appearance for City since August, helping the Robins keep a clean sheet against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Now the club captain focuses on the challenge of another top-end-of-the-table fixture versus the Baggies.

Three goals in an electric opening 20 minutes stretched City’s unbeaten run to five matches.
