It’s a return to Premier League 2 action for Dave Horseman’s side this weekend, as they look to bounce back after their first defeat since September at Sunderland.

A diminished Saints side came from a goal down to take the lead away from home - goals from Dom Ballard and Dynel Simeu turning the tide – before a late Black Cats surge earnt the hosts three points.

West Brom are currently sitting second in Premier League 2 Division 2, nine points behind leaders Fulham after six wins, four draws and two defeats from 12 games.

The latest draw came last-time-out, recovering from visitors Reading taking a lead inside three minutes through Reyes Cleary’s equaliser but unable to take three points at the Hawthorns.

LAST MEETING

The two sides last met in September of this year, Snows Stadium also playing host to the Premier League Cup fixture.

West Brom took an early lead through Rico Richards before Saints went on to dominate the half, only for the Baggies to double their lead thanks to Quevin Castro’s stoppage time free kick.

The second half was dominated by the visitors, who went on to score six without reply.

The last meeting between the two sides in league action came during the 2018/19 season, where Will Smallbone scored as the two sides played out a 1-1 stalemate at the West Bromwich Albion Training Ground.

MANAGER’S NOTES

“We’re in a good place,” said Horseman. “We obviously lose Kami [Doyle] and Dom [Ballard] who are off with England so we’ll have to see who will be back from injury.

“West Brom are second in the league and are one of the stronger ones. We played them earlier in the season and played quite well but found ourselves 6-0 down.

“They’re really clinical and are one of the best two or three teams in the league. But it's a challenge we're looking forward to."
