Stan Collymore predicts West Brom will beat Wolves at The Hawthorns on Monday but claims the Albion will still be relegated.
Sam Allardyce’s men are cut adrift in the relegation zone with them needing to close down a gap of 11 points in their final five games.
It’s almost impossible for West Brom to make up that ground and even though Collymore predicts the Baggies to win 1-0 on Monday, he doesn’t see them standing any chance of pulling off a second Great Escape.
Writing in the Sunday People [print edition, May 2], Collymore said: “Feel-good win but will it keep the Baggies in the division?
Time to bow out in style
It’s been a tough return to the Premier League for West Brom this season and relegation is more inevitable now than it has been this term.
However, the Baggies can bow out and return to the Championship in style by inflicting as much damage as possible on their remaining opponents.
If we’re going to win any of the last five games, it’s this one.
Wolves’ woes at The Hawthorns are well-documented among the Baggies fanbase so ensuring they don’t win there for the first time in over two decades is a must.
We’d take a draw to keep that record intact but obviously, we want to win this game so badly.
Matheus Pereira has been on fire lately and he ruined Wolves at Molineux back in January.
Hopefully, there’s more of the same from him and fewer mistakes in the defence that cost us all three points against Aston Villa last week.
