In that match, West Bromwich Albion had 49% possession and 15 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. For West Bromwich Albion, goals were scored by Matt Phillips (9') and Brandon Thomas-Asante (75'). At the other end, Bristol City had 8 shots on goal with 3 on target.
Their latest results highlight the fact that not much more can be done by the West Bromwich Albion defence. West Bromwich Albion have kept it tight, resulting in the number of goals that have gone in at their end during their last 6 matches standing at 2. That trend won’t necessarily be carried forward here, of course.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Huddersfield Town in Championship competition, Preston North End and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

The stats tell the story, and Preston North End have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 9 goals in total. In defence, Preston North End have been far from perfect.
Coming into this fixture, Preston North End are unbeaten in their previous 2 away league matches.
I am of the view that Preston North End will surely be able to put one past this West Bromwich Albion team, however it probably shouldn’t be enough to prevent defeat.
I am anticipating a 2-1 winning margin for West Bromwich Albion by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. I’ll have to see what happens.
