West Bromwich Albion v Bristol City - Sky Bet Championship
West Brom will host Sheffield on Saturday - Sky Bet Championship

West Bromwich Albion will host Sheffield United at the Hawthorns on Saturday (October 29) afternoon in the Championship.

The hosts have endured a near abysmal start to their season, finding themselves in the drop zone. West Brom lost 2-1 to high-flying Millwall in their last game. They had looked set to come away with a point before their opponents snatched all three points late on.

West Brom are 23rd in the standings with 14 points from 16 games. They are just a point above last-placed Huddersfield Town and will look to widen that gap this weekend.

Sheffield, meanwhile, have enjoyed a brilliant start to their season but have lost their way recently, falling behind in the race for promotion. They played out a 2-2 draw against Norwich City last time out. Ben Osborn and Oliver McBurnie got on the scoresheet in the second half to wipe out an early two-goal deficit.

The visitors are fifth in the league table with 26 points from 16 games. They will now look to shake off their latest results and get their campaign back on track.
