EFL Championship Friday: Miller picks Huddersfield Town vs West Brom in a game the Baggies NEED to win
West Bromwich Albion needs to win Friday to stave off late season Brentford charge. Match time is 12:30 pm EDT.
Since the restart, West Bromwich Albion has lost just one of seven matches. But the Baggies have only won three: three draws, including in their last two, have seen their automatic promotion push fall off the rails.
To make matters worse, Brentford is coming on like a runaway freight train: seven straight wins since the restart (eight overall), to move to within one point of the Baggies with two games to go. I don’t think you could find too many people that think Brentford won’t continue this run either: the Bees have Stoke City and Barnsley, which is all but relegated, left.
West Brom NEEDS to win this: if the Baggies fail to pick up all three points, they could find themselves in the four-team playoffs, after sitting in the automatic promotion places all season.
I think WBA finds a way here.
