Jeff Stelling predicts West Brom v Bristol City scoreline
Jeff Stelling predicts West Brom to lose their unbeaten Championship home record when Bristol City make the trip to The Hawthorns on Saturday.
Valerien Ismael’s side suffered their second league defeat of the 2021/22 campaign on Wednesday night as Swansea City came from behind to win 2-1 in South Wales.
However, Albion are yet to taste defeat on their own patch in the Championship, with a 6-0 League Cup hammering at the hands of Arsenal the only blemish in B71 since May.
However, Sky Sports Soccer Saturday host Stelling predicts that run to come to an end against Nigel Pearson’s Bristol City side.
Stelling has backed the Robins to win 2-1 in his weekly Super6 prediction.
Away stars come to town
Bristol are currently in the midst of a poor run of form with just two wins from their last eight games, including three defeats from their last four.
However, considering their 16th-place position in the Championship table, the Robins have a remarkable record away from home.
Only Bournemouth  and Nottingham Forest  have picked up more away points than Bristol City’s 12, a stark contrast to their home form that has seen them accrue a mealy four points.
West Brom, though, are a tough nut to crack at The Hawthorns, with Derby County and Millwall the only teams to deny them maximum points there so far this season.
Saturday’s clash looks set to be a tight affair if the statistics are anything to go by.
