PNE V WBA
Fortunes so far
North End play host to West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday evening looking to end a four-match winless streak in the Championship.
I’m fact North End haven’t won at home this season and the baggies haven’t won away so forgive me if I suggest a draw. Over the last 6 games North have picked up 6 points to Albion’s 4 which explains their lowly league position of 21st. Could a North End win trigger another visit to the potting shed for Bruce?
Lowe may opt to make changes in the final third with Troy Parrott in line to return. McCann and Ben Woodburn are also alternatives with Ched Evans potentially dropping down to the substitutes' bench. Andrew Hughes will hope to return to the squad after missing the trip to the Stadium of Light through illness.
As for West Brom, Tom Rogic should retain his place in central midfield after coming through 57 minutes on his debut versus Swansea.
However, Okay Yokuslu and Jayson Molumby are alternatives in that area of the pitch, while Karlan Grant will expect a recall in place of Brandon Thomas-Asante.
PNE 3-0 WBA Saturday 7th February 2004.
Scorers: Lewis, Healy, Alexander.
Team: Lonerghan, Alexander, Broomes, Jackson, Mears, Etuhu, McKenna, Cresswell, Healy, Fuller.
Great game they were 2nd in the league we were 8th. Very gusty. My back garden fences blew down that night.
Michael Keane replaced Etuhu early doors and played a blinder. Lewis was a magician from set pieces.
The bookies has Albion as slight favourites which I find intriguing.
Baggies fans predictions:
I think we’ll send Bruce to the potting shed.
Enjoy the game.
Is 3-4-3 the answer to unlocking the goalscoring door?
