West Brom will host Barnsley in their final EFL Championship game of the season on Saturday at the Hawthorns.

Despite winning their last game against Reading, Steve Bruce's men are miles off a place in the playoffs. It has been a disappointing season for them, especially after the start they had and how they were doing around the middle of the season. At one point in November, they were on par with Fulham, who have emerged as the eventual winners of the competition.

The visitors do not have much to play for as they have already been relegated. They are on a four-match losing run in the division.

West Bromwich Albion vs Barnsley Prediction

Neither of the teams have much to play for. For the hosts, a win will only ensure a top-10 finish in the division, while any other result may throw them out of the mix.

Barnsley have been disappointing throughout the season and became the first team in the division to be relegated. Their current form only indicates the fact that they are merely going through the motions.

A comprehensive victory for West Brom is on the cards.

Prediction: West Brom 3-1 Barnsley
