Our prediction for this Championship match:
Peterborough United and West Bromwich Albion take on each other in a highly-anticipated Championship game at Weston Homes Stadium. The Posh aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Preston, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Baggies. Both Marriott and Szmodics are likely to return to the starting XI, while all Beevers, Jones R.J, and Taylor remain in the recovery room. WBA, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win.
The Baggies are on a quest to return to the Premier League, and given their attacking potential, goals galore is on the cards at Weston Homes Stadium. Loanee Matt Clarke, who limped off with injury in the win at Blackburn Rovers, is unlikely to feature in Saturday’s game. In their last meeting in the Championship at the venue WBA recorded a 3-2 win over Peterborough.
