On Saturday at the Hawthorns West Brom host Cardiff City (Watch live online via NBC Sports Live Extra) in a relegation six-pointer.
Baggies boss Pepe Mel, has one just once in this first nine games in charge and is desperate to clinch a big win in front of the home fans.
West Brom have won just twice in 20 games, while Cardiff have only recorded three victories in their last 21 matches. Both teams are out of form, but Cardiff know a win will draw them level on points with West Brom and drag another team into the relegation scrap. Cardiff’s new manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has also struggled since arriving in the PL, as he’s picked up just seven points from 33 games.
