Tips and Prediction
Steve Bruce is conscious of the pressure to guide West Brom to a promotion-chasing season this year despite having time to settle into club life.
Despite only having two points and a record, Bruce’s team has possibly had the most challenging start to the season out of the 24 clubs in this division.
The defeat suffered on Sunday at Blackburn Rovers is the lone blemish on the record. The league’s top team, Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough, Watford, and other teams have previously been played.
Given that they had less time to recover than their in-form hosts due to their EFL Cup commitments, that loss was not wholly unexpected, and Bruce will think his team is in good position going into their next league game. Even though Daryl Dike’s injury has left West Brom without a striker, they still have Karlan Grant and Callum Robinson, two players with a history of scoring goals at this level.
Steve Morison of Cardiff will be pleased with his team’s six points after three games, despite witnessing his team blow a lead against Reading.
After that defeat in the league, watching the team lose at home to Portsmouth in the EFL Cup did not do the dressing room any favors, but the Bluebirds do seem to be on the right track. The squad is now in fifth place after a win over Birmingham City at the weekend, and it looks like the groundwork has been done for a playoff push.
Cardiff has had a great start, but despite their inability to score goals, they might find it difficult to compete at home against a team like West Brom.
We think the Baggies still have enough talent to secure all three points in spite of their own issues in the final third.
