Match Previews

Bristol City v Albion match preview

21 February 2020

Albion travel to Bristol City with the aim of extending their unbeaten run to five games this Saturday (ko 3pm).

Bristol City

Their last outing

City were beaten 1-0 by Leeds at Elland Road last weekend thanks to former Robin Luke Ayling’s first-half strike.

The result ensured they stayed narrowly outside the Play-Off places in seventh, only separated from the top six by goal difference.

BRISTOL CITY: Bentley, Kalas, Williams, Baker, Dasilva, Eliasson (Palmer 74), Massengo, Henriksen, Paterson (Diedhiou 60), Weimann (O’Dowda 34), Wells.

Substitutes: Hunt, Rowe, Benkovic, Wollacott.

In the dugout

Lee Johnson has been at the helm of the Ashton Gate side for four years, achieving finishes of 18th, 17th and 11th before ending last season in eighth.

The 38-year-old made more than 450 appearances for clubs such as Yeovil, Bristol City, Derby, Chesterfield and Kilmarnock - hanging his boots up in 2013 and moving straight into management.

Johnson took over at Oldham aged just 31 ahead of switching to Barnsley 11 months later, where he was then picked up by the Robins in 2016.

One to watch

January signing Nahki Wells will be one for Albion’s defence to watch closely this weekend.

The striker, captured permanently from Burnley following a lethal first half of this season on loan at QPR, has netted 16 times already this campaign - once in a City shirt.

He’s had a prolific career, scoring over 125 goals despite not yet turning 30, and has featured heavily in the EFL as well as in the Premier League.

Our last league meeting

The Baggies ran out 4-1 winners against Bristol City back in November.

Fantastic goals from Kieran Gibbs and Matheus Pereira had Albion two up at the break, and despite Famara Diedhiou’s strike for the Robins the scoreline was rounded off late on by Hal Robson-Kanu and Charlie Austin.

• Slaven Bilić’s side remain at the summit of the Sky Bet Championship following a so-far successful February, which has seem them win three and draw one of their four games.

• Albion have the best record on the road in the division and have failed to score just once away from home this season.

• The Baggies have found the net in all of their last five trips to Bristol City.

Bristol City

• The Robins are unbeaten in their three most recent league games against Albion at Ashton Gate, but did lose 1-0 in an FA Cup Third Round replay in 2016.

• Both teams have scored in 10 of the last 11 meetings between City and the Baggies. In those 11 meetings, eight matches have produced four or more goals.

• City have been inconsistent in front of their own fans. Their last five fixtures at home reads WLWLW, and they have lost four of their last 10 in Bristol.

Our man to watch

Callum Robinson has been in great form since arriving temporarily from Sheffield United last month.

The exciting forward claimed his first assist on his debut against Luton and notched a maiden goal in blue and white last weekend against Nottingham Forest.

He also happens to be very good at recognising football shirts…

Match Reports

Bristol City 0 Albion 3

22 February 2020

Albion made it five Sky Bet Championship games unbeaten with a brilliant 3-0 win against Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

A clinical five-minute spell in the first-half helped the Baggies on their way to victory, Callum Robinson netting his second for the Club before Hal Robson-Kanu tapped in soon after.

Despite Romaine Sawyers’ red card with 13 minutes left, Robson-Kanu added a fantastic third late on to ensure Slaven Bilić’s side begin a busy week with three huge points in the West Country.

The superb result keeps table-topping Albion four points ahead of second-placed Leeds, and moves them nine clear of Fulham in third.

Bilić made just one change to the XI that started all three games last week, Ahmed Hegazi replacing Kyle Bartley in the centre of Albion’s defence.

Despite a shot-less opening 20 minutes from both teams, Albion suddenly sprung into life midway through the half - Matheus Pereira unfortunate to see his thunderous volley bravely blocked by Jack Hunt.

The Baggies continued to put pressure on their hosts, winning a series of free-kicks in dangerous areas as well as a number of corners, finally finding a deserved breakthrough on 32 minutes.

One of the Championship’s leading assist-makers Pereira played Robinson clean through on goal, and even though his initial low effort was saved by Bentley the ball rebounded off the Sheffield United loanee and into City’s net.

That lead was then doubled no more than five minutes later. Quick play down the right ended in the impressive Jake Livermore having a shot pushed straight into the path of Robson-Kanu, who tucked home from a few yards out.

Albion took their two-goal advantage into the break and came close to extending it a few times ahead of the hour mark, Robson-Kanu and Livermore both firing wide and Robinson heading off-target when well-placed.

Nahki Wells had a good opportunity to pull one back for the hosts with 20 minutes to play but his volley from less than 10-yards out didn’t trouble Sam Johnstone.

With under quarter-of-an-hour to go Romaine Sawyers was given his marching orders, but that didn’t deter the Baggies - who put the result beyond doubt thanks to Robson-Kanu’s stunning strike in front of the jubilant 3,000 travelling supporters.

ALBION: Johnstone, O’Shea, Ajayi, Hegazi, Townsend; Livermore, Sawyers; Pereira (Phillips 85), Krovinović (Harper 79), Robinson (Grosicki 74); Robson-Kanu.

Substitutes: Bond, Bartley, Furlong, Austin.
