West Bromwich Albion were denied their first win of the new EFL Championship campaign as they fell to a 2-1 loss against Blackburn Rovers on Sunday.

This followed a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Sheffield United on August 11 which saw the Baggies progress to the second round of the EFL Cup.

West Brom, who have picked up two points from their first three league games, have now returned home where they are currently on a six-game unbeaten run.

Cardiff City will now look to build on their win over the Blues and pick up a second consecutive league win for the first time since March.

West Bromwich Albion vs Cardiff City Prediction

West Brom have struggled to hit their stride this season and have managed just two points from the nine available. However, they are unbeaten in four straight home games against the Bluebirds, dating back to December 2009. We predict they will do just enough to leave with a share of the spoils in front of their home crowd.

Prediction: West Bromwich Albion 2-2 Cardiff City
