Saturday’s opponents Huddersfield Town will be hoping to build on their impressive start to the season when Albion come to town.

The Terriers have taken 25 points from their 17 games so far, with 16 of those coming at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Town are unbeaten in their last four league games on home soil and have suffered just two Sky Bet Championship defeats in front of their own fans in 2021/22. 

This weekend’s hosts are now well into their third season in the second tier of English football having been relegated from the top flight in May 2019, but they’ve struggled to challenge in the Championship and have finished 18th and 20th respectively in the last two terms.

However, there’s real hope this year can be different. Carlos Corberan’s side have secured a number of eye-catching victories and will have their sights firmly set on another against the Baggies as they try and maintain their play-off push.

The 38-year-old Spaniard, who represented Valencia CF at youth level before moving into coaching at the young age of 23, was appointed boss in the summer of 2020 having previously worked at Leeds United as the Whites’ U23’s manager. 

He’s won 19 of his 67 games in charge of Huddersfield, drawing 18 and losing 30.
