West Bromwich Albion failed to find their feet in the EFL Championship as they suffered a 1-0 defeat against QPR last Saturday.

The Baggies are now without a win in five consecutive games, picking up two draws and losing two, including a 2-1 defeat against Brighton in the FA Cup.

With 42 points from 26 games, West Bromwich Albion are currently fifth on the log, level on points with Middlesbrough.

Meanwhile, Peterborough United were denied a second straight win last time out as they fell to a humbling 4-1 loss against Coventry City.

This followed a 2-1 win over Bristol City which saw them progress to the next round of the FA Cup.

Peterborough United have endured a rough campaign so far and are currently in the final relegation spot after claiming 19 points from 24 games.
