  • Swansea have recovered just two points from losing positions away from home this season.

Do or die time for under-fire Albion

It’s do or die time in the promotion race for West Bromwich Albion and the evidence of Steve Bruce’s reign so far isn’t that encouraging, but Monday’s clash with Swansea is an opportunity to change the mood around the Hawthorns.

Albion’s travelling fans were heard singing “You’re not fit to wear the shirt” when the Baggies slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Kenilworth Road last weekend and their humour won’t have been helped by the second-half capitulation at Middlesbrough on Tuesday. Steve Bruce sat on his hands, failing to react to the changes Chris Wilder made to turn the game at the Riverside Stadium, leading to questions over whether he’s the right man for the job.

WBA, with five defeats and a draw since their last league win, are a sinking ship right now and it would take a brave soul to back them at Monday’s odds on quote. However, Swansea are hardly a cohesive unit themselves right now – especially when on the road after three straight defeats without scoring a goal.

Baggies can get on top of slow-starting Swans 

Russell Martin’s side have tended to start slowly and concede the opener, which has happened in five of their last six matches, making things very hard for themselves.  Any temptation to back the hosts to lead at 45 minutes and the final whistle must be tempered by the fact that Albion have not scored a first-half goal in their last eight home league contests.

Despite their latest setbacks, there were some aspects of West Brom’s performances that were reminiscent of a team that should be challenging for the top two. They can transition from defence to attack fluently with enough pace out wide and up front to put most teams on the back foot. January signing Andy Carroll has been putting some good shifts in too and it’s only a matter of time before he scores.

Four clean sheets in their last six at the Hawthorns have us leaning towards a Baggies win to nil here and a 1-0 correct score bet in favour of the hosts. Three of Albion’s last five home victories have been by that exact scoreline.
