West Brom vs Preston
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich).
West Brom has a leg in the playoffs, and in the subsequent match-days, they will be trying to consolidate it. They need to be wary of the threat posed by Bristol City, who is five points below them, though with a match in hand.
Brom has themselves to blame for falling out of favor for the direct-promotion spots. The team experienced a dip in form in the mid-season. They are trying to make up for it now though.
Preston has to overcome a deficit of eight points from the next five match-days, to be considered for the playoffs, and that too against the best teams in the league. This coming on top of their three consecutive losses in the Championship.
