West Bromwich Albion form and stats

The home supporters can't complain about results here at The Hawthorns as West Bromwich Albion have scored 16 goals to get 21 points from 9 games. The overall stats in the Championship are 6-3-0 (wins-draws-losses).

Times are rough for the home team, having gone 205 minutes without scoring a league goal. G. Diangana was the last player to find the net.

WBA manager V. Ismaël and his team return home after a 0-0 draw away versus Blackpool (placed 9th) in the Championship. Midfielder Conor Townsend was the best player on the team with a rating of 8.43 (out of ten) in that game. Townsend hit six key passes and dribled past the opponent 2 of 2 times.

Heartbreak before that as WBA lost 0-1 at Huddersfield Town's place.

The hosts are favourites to win this game, with an estimated chance of about 55-60% of that outcome. Earlier WBA matches with similar probabilities have ended with three wins, two draws and zero defeats (from five games).

The WBA fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 16 goals in 9 league matches. From these home matches, WBA have conceded only 5 goals.

The story so far for the visiting team on their Championship travels is 4 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats. Nottingham are enjoying a nice run from their away games now, having played seven in a row without losing.

Ahead of that match was the away draw versus Reading that ended 1-1.
