At 50 points from the opening 29 matches West Brom are seven points off the automatic promotion spots and they are just above seventh placed Derby County on goal difference. After picking just one win in the last six matches, this will be a crucial clash from West Brom who look to secure an immediate return to the top flight. They will be hoping to do a bit better in the Championship too, after managing just two wins in their last five league game but the more positive thing is that they have been scoring with some good regularity. In the Championship, West Brom are the top scorers with 60 goals but they have not matched the same with their defensive record, and they are the side with the second weakest defence among the top seven teams in the Championship. They have managed just two wins in their last nine home league matches and a win in this game will do them a lot of good. Nottingham are not doing a lot better either; they have two wins and four losses in the last six matches and they have failed to score in all the four loss. Nottingham are also winless in their last seven away matches and each of the last four has ended in defeat, without the team scoring a single goal. The team has just three wins in the last 21 away matches in the Championship.
