David Prutton has predicted that West Brom will bag a second consecutive win by beating Hull City at The Hawthorns on Sunday.
Albion notched their first win since February by beating Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 at Hillsborough on Wednesday night to move within one point of Championship leaders Leeds.
Sky Sports pundit Prutton has now predicted that the Baggies will win again this weekend by tipping them to beat Hull 3-1 on the Sky website.
Prutton has also offered a bit of a warning to West Brom and promotion rivals Leeds.
Nottingham Forest have won two on the bounce to move within seven points of the Baggies and Prutton claims if they keep up their form, they could pile pressure on the top-two.
“Nottingham Forest feel destined for the play-offs now, but they need to keep their momentum up and you never know if Leeds and West Brom slip,” the former Leeds and Forest midfielder said.
West Brom should not concern themselves with the form of Nottingham Forest just yet but they are certainly a team that are in form and still stand a chance of finishing in the top-two.
What Albion need to do is just focus on their own form.
Slaven Bilic’s stroke of genius in his team selection on Wednesday night helped the Baggies get back to winning ways in emphatic fashion.
He will no doubt make changes again this weekend with Hull in the Black Country and they are a team that the side should really be beating with no problems.
If they win that and Brentford and Forest drop points in their respective games against Wigan and Derby, Bilic’s side will be once more in a commanding position inside the top-two.
