Match Previews

Baggies set for Scunthorpe PL Cup clash

12 February 2020

Albion Under-23s will have the chance to secure qualification to the knockout stages of the Premier League Cup when they face Scunthorpe United at Hednesford Town’s Keys Park on Thursday (ko 2pm).

After consecutive wins against all three teams in Group C, the Baggies fell to a 1-0 defeat against Newcastle United in tricky conditions at the Club's training ground in their most recent game, on Monday.

The Baggies go into their penultimate group game knowing a win would see them through to the last 16 of the competition.

If the game ends in a draw, Newcastle can go top with a win in their final game if the Baggies lose their last group match.

In that same circumstance, Hull would need two consecutive wins against Scunthorpe and the Throstles in order to match Albion’s point total.

The clash between the Baggies and the Iron was originally scheduled for Tuesday, January 21 but was postponed.

A Cheikh Diaby hat-trick helped Albion confirm their place as Premier League Cup Group C winners with a 3-0 victory against Scunthorpe United.

A quick-fire double by Diaby before the half-hour mark gave the Baggies the advantage at the halfway stage, with the French forward netting his third with just more than 20 minutes to play.

Albion went close through Harry Williams before Diaby headed in from a Finley Thorndike free-kick. 

The Frenchmen instantly doubled the Baggies’ advantage two minutes later when he capitalised on a blunder by Adam Kelsey to prod home from close range.

The hosts had the ball in the net again before the break but Mo Faal’s goal was ruled out for offside.

In the second half, Albion were comfortable in possession and added to their lead in the 68th minute, when Diaby controlled in the box and finished past Kelsey following a corner.

ALBION: Cann; Gardner-Hickman, Sharpe, Williams, Dyce (Delaney 68); Wilding, Chambers; Ojebode, Thorndike, Diaby (Brown 78); Faal.

Substitutes: Hill, (Delaney 68), (Taylor 45), King.
