West Bromwich Albion vs Bristol City Prediction and Betting Tips | October 18, 2022

West Bromwich Albion v Birmingham City - Sky Bet Championship
West Bromwich Albion will host Bristol City on Tuesday - Sky Bet Championship

West Bromwich Albion will host Bristol City at the Hawthorns on Tuesday (October 18) night in the Championship.

The hosts have endured a difficult start to their season, prompting the dismissal of veteran manager Steve Bruce less than a year after his appointment. They, however, went on to win their first game since Bruce's exit, beating Reading 2-0 away, via goals from Matt Phillips and Taylor Gardner-Hickman in either half.

West Brom are 20th in the standings with 14 points from as many games. They are just one point above the drop zone and will look to widen that gap this week.

Bristol, meanwhile, have struggled for results recently after a solid start to their campaign. They were beaten 2-1 by Millwall in their last game and were rather toothless in attack. Bristol managed just one shot on target all game, getting on the scoresheet via an own goal midway through the second half.

The visitors are 17th in the league table with 18 points and will be hopeful of adding to that tally this week.

West Bromwich Albion vs Bristol City Prediction

West Brom's latest result snapped their nine-game winless streak across competitions, and they will now look to build on that. They have, however, won just one of their seven home league games this season and could struggle here.

Bristol, meanwhile, have lost two of their last three games and have won just one of their last seven. They have lost their last three away outings but could pick up a point against the struggling Baggies.
