Despite the sides being two of the form sides in the division, the clubs occupy 11th and 10th spots ahead of the weekend fixtures, although within touching distance of the playoffs.

When West Brom under-performed at Coventry City on December 21 and saw a five-game winning run come to an end, fans may have feared that the honeymoon period under Carlos Corberan was over.

However, West Brom have since responded with back-to-back victories and clean sheets against Bristol City and Preston North End, enough to keep the club in the top half of the table.

The Baggies are now just four points adrift of third-placed Blackburn Rovers while many of the other sides above them have remained inconsistent.

Meanwhile, Paul Ince will probably feel aggrived that his side still in 10th place when they have picked up 10 points from their last five matches.

Three victories were posted in four matches before Reading came from behind to earn another valuable point away at Norwich City on Friday.

Andy Carroll scored a late penalty for his fourth goal of the season and it was a share of the spoils which has kept the Royals level on points with the playoff places.

However, despite pciking up four points from their last three matches on the road, Reading remain with one of the worst away records in the division ahead of facing opponents who have won four games on the bounce at The Hawthorns.

West Bromwich Albion vs. Reading Head to head

These two teams have previously met on 27 occasions across all competitions, where West Brom have claimed 12 victories while Reading have won eight, and they have drawn in seven. Reading have scored 31 goals and conceded 40 in the process.

West Bromwich Albion Team News

Having made full use of his substitutions last time out, Corberan could name the same West Brom XI for this game.

However, John Swift is pushing for a recall against his former side, while Dike will also come into contention to take the place of Brandon Thomas-Asante down the middle of the attack.

Reading Team News

Yakou Meite is likely to be restored to the Reading attack as replacement for Lucas Joao, who rarely provided a threat against Norwich City.

Amadou Salif Mbengue is also an option in a defensive postition if Ince decides to strengthen his backline given the size of the task awaiting his team in the West Midlands.
