West Brom – Blackburn Match Preview
- It proved to be an unhappy return to management for Steve Bruce, who lost his 1001st game on the touchline in his West Bromwich Albion debut (2-0 vs Sheffield United) thanks in part to a first-half red card for captain Jake Livermore. Bruce will instead be eyeing a positive home debut against Blackburn Rovers, a side that he hasn’t lost a home league H2H against across the last ten encounters (W9, D1).
- Out of the playoff places for the first time since matchday one due to a run of just one win in eight prior league outings (D2, L5), Bruce will be keen to get in the fans’ good books after some questioned his initial appointment while others mostly remember him for managing two of WBA’s Midlands rivals. It’s not all doom and gloom though, as despite losing their last home match, West Brom haven’t recorded back-to-back Championship home defeats since 2007, so history hints at a positive ‘Baggies’ result here.
- Blackburn’s charge for automatic promotion has stumbled following a run of one win from their last five league games (D1, L3), though manager Tony Mowbray remains defiant, insisting that their togetherness can see them through this period of suffering. Rovers are certainly capable of upsetting the odds again in this clash, as they’re unbeaten in 60% of their league games entered as outsiders this term (W6, D3, L6).
- Despite Mowbray’s comments, fans could be left waiting for a gift from their beloved Rovers this Valentine’s Day following a 346-minute goalscoring drought on the road. Another scoreless trip would represent Blackburn’s first run of four goalless away league games since 2013, though they’ll hope to avoid such a fate after bagging in four of the last five H2Hs at The Hawthorns (W1, D2, L2).
- Players to watch: WBA’s four wins since the start of November all saw Callum Robinson make a goal contribution (G1, A4 in victories). For Blackburn, Ben Brereton Diáz is currently enduring his longest goal drought of the season (six games), but he did score in the reverse fixture.
- Hot stat: In H2Hs between these managers, Mowbray-managed sides have never kept a clean sheet away to a Bruce-managed team (L5).
