West Brom looks to continue their unbeaten form in the Championship this week as they take on QPR. The match schedules for Friday night at the Hawthorns, with kickoff at 10 pm.
The Baggies come on the back of three consecutive draws in the Championship, with their latest result being a 1-1 draw to Preston North End. On the other hand, QPR comes off a mouth-watering 2-2 draw to Everton in the EFL Cup.
First, West Brom is in desperate need of a win. If they want to avoid relegation, it’s time for them to stand up and be counted – which means getting back on track with three victories in a row.
However, Valerien Ismael would not be so fortunate after eight matches. The Baggies remain unbeaten, and just two points off top spot in third place with only one match left to play, a scenario he might well have taken before this latest defeat.
Ismael was pleased with his side’s performance despite only recording a 1-1 draw at Preston North End last weekend. The seven goals conceded is the third-lowest total in England’s second tier, and Ismael will be excited about that fact as we head into next season.
From QPR’s perspective, they are trying to steal a few promotion rivals’ thunders following Wednesday night’s game.
Warburton will be overjoyed with the outcome on Tuesday night, but he has now conceded nine goals in his last four fixtures.
