The Baggies produced one of their best performances of the season to defeat Ipswich Town on Saturday, with defender Darnell Furlong and winger Grady Diangana on target.

Hosts Cardiff City are enjoying a really strong season and claimed a 2-1 victory over Preston North End at Deepdale over the weekend. 

The Bluebirds are two points and two places behind Carlos Corberán's Baggies.

The opponents

Cardiff City are enjoying a splendid start to the season and sit just outside the top six of the Sky Bet Championship ahead of Albion's visit on Tuesday night.

The Bluebirds are seventh in the division, just two points and two positions behind the Baggies having picked up eight victories and three draws from their 17 games. 

The side from South Wales have only been beaten once in their last five matches and claimed an impressive 2-1 triumph at Preston North End on Saturday afternoon courtesy of two second-half injury-time efforts from on-loan Albion forward Karlan Grant and then Ike Ugbo.

Cardiff have fought off relegation in the last two campaigns, finishing 18th and 21st in 2021/22 and 2022/23 respectively, so battling at the top end of the table rather than the bottom is a welcome sight for supporters. 

Erol Bulut, the 48-year-old former Fenerbahce, Olympiakos and Eintracht Frankfurt player, is the boss. He was appointed in June and has previously managed a host of clubs in Turkey, including giants Fenerbahce. Bulut has wasted no time winning the hearts of the home fans and will be determined to see his side pick up a sixth win in nine in the league at the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday.

Cardiff have secured some really positive results this season

One to remember

Albion recorded a thumping triumph down in the Welsh capital in September, 2021.

Karlan Grant, Curtis Nelson (OG), Alex Mowatt and Matty Phillips all found the net for the visitors as the Baggies claimed a convincing 4-0 win.

The most memorable goal of the night was Alex Mowatt's screamer in the second 45.

Supporters can watch the highlights from that night below.

Albion made it successive Sky Bet Championship triumphs with an impressive 1-0 win at Cardiff on Tuesday evening.

The Baggies earned all three points thanks to Jeremy Sarmiento’s stunning second half strike - as well as another important clean sheet.

Next up, Carlos Corberán’s men, who are now third in the table, welcome league leaders Leicester City to The Hawthorns this Saturday.

The boss named two changes from Saturday’s impressive win against Ipswich, switching midfield duo Sarmiento and John Swift in for Matt Phillips and Brandon Thomas-Asante.

Following a quiet opening 30 minutes, the game suddenly burst into life via a scintillating Albion counter-attack. Sarmiento was the man tasked with finishing it off, but his low poke agonisingly hit the post and was scrambled away.

Cardiff then went close down the other end, Josh Bowler forcing Alex Palmer into a decent stop to deny his finish, and, in truth, neither side went close to breaking the deadlock again ahead of half-time.

That all changed five minutes after the interval, though, thanks to a fantastic Sarmiento goal. The winger cut in from the left and curled home a superb effort - right in front of the travelling Baggies - netting his second of the season and giving Albion the lead.

Corberán’s men managed to control the game and keep Cardiff at bay for most of the second period, and even had a chance to put the game to bed towards the end, Thomas-Asante nodding over when only a few yards out.

The hosts did eventually threaten during stoppage time - however Rubin Colwill’s low shot went well wide, and Manolis Siopis volleyed off-target, meaning Albion saw it out to claim the victory.

Albion: Palmer; Furlong, Bartley, Kipre, Townsend; Yokuslu (Molumby 74), Mowatt; Sarmiento (Phillips 65), Swift (Maja 74), Diangana (Fellows 65); Wallace (Thomas-Asante 21).

Substitutes: Griffiths, Ajayi, Pipa, Chalobah.
