Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a 3-0 win at Bristol City, WBA will be aiming to retain top position in the table when they face Preston at the Hawthorns. The Baggies have been scoring goals for fun in the Championship of late, and it is no wonder they are seen as hot favourites to win the midweek fixture. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be Wales international Hal Robson-Kanu, who scored a brace against the Robins. It has to be noted, though, that midfielder Romaine Sawyers is sidelined through suspension.
Despite having been having their ups and downs this season, the Lilywhites are sitting in the play-offs berth ahead of the trip to West Midlands. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts, who have been in a terrific form in the Championship in recent weeks.
