West Bromwich Albion play host to Blackpool on Friday
The visitors head into the game winless in four consecutive games and will be seeking to end this dry spell and resume their push to the top half of the standings.
West Bromwich Albion were sent crashing back down to earth last Saturday as they fell to a 3-1 home defeat against Stoke City.
This followed an impressive 2-0 victory over Bournemouth on April 6 which saw their two-game winless run come to an end.
With 57 points from 41 games, West Brom are currently 12th in the EFL Championship table, level on points with Preston North End and Swansea City.
Elsewhere, Blackpool failed to find their feet as they could only salvage a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers last time out.
They have now failed to taste victory in any of their last four outings, claiming two draws and losing twice since a 1-0 win over Swansea on March 12.
Blackpool are currently 16th in the league table after picking up 53 points from 40 games.

While Blackpool will be looking to return to winning ways, they have struggled for form on the road, picking up just one win from their last 11 away games since November.
West Brom have been solid on their home ground and we predict they will make use of this advantage once again to claim all three points.
