West Bromwich Albion

Last updated: Sat 30 March 2019 05:57
In Brief

West Brom have two wins out of two under caretaker James Shan. Kieran Gibbs and Matty Phillips doubtful.

Looking Back

Still without a new permanent manager but James Shan now set to continue as caretaker, possibly for the rest of the season.

Certainly been a good start for Shan with victories in both his matches in charge including 1-0 at Brentford last time out.

Looking Ahead

Injury situation is fairly good with Kieran Gibbs and Matty Phillips the only men likely to be assessed.

Shan could well make changes simply as he has a large number of players at his disposal.

Points of Interest

Have eight wins, seven draws and four defeats on home soil this term.

Birmingham City

Last updated: Sat 30 March 2019 05:57
In Brief

Birmingham in disarray after four straight defeats. Have now had nine points deducted too. Tomasz Kuszczak injured but Maxime Colin and Charlie Lakin both fit.

Looking Back

Big problems for Birmingham who have been hit with a nine points deducted due to financial irregularities. Suddenly from having an outside play-off chance, they are not safe from relegation just yet.

Have lost four games on the spin including defeat 1-0 at Preston last time out, despite a promising performance.

Looking Ahead

Garry Monk could consider changes having had an international break to re-assess.

Tomasz Kuszczak remains sidelined but Charlie Lakin and Maxime Colin have now been passed fit.

Points of Interest

Have six wins, six draws and seven defeats away from home this season. Drew 1-1 at home to West Brom earlier in season.
