The Hawthorns stadium is ready to host Millwall against their home side, West Bromwich Albion, this weekend at 14:00 UTC after drawing against Watford in the seventh round of the championship.
- West Bromwich Albion has only one victory out of their last five championship matches this season
- The Albions have been in blistering form, scoring nine goals in their previous five games
- There has been no defeat for Millwall against West Brom since January 2022
In the eighth round of the championship, both teams will look to catch up to the leading teams with a win. Millwall should be looking forward to sticking to their plans, as they conceded three goals against Leeds, Norwich, and Reading. The Lions are currently at 11th, four points above the West Bromwich Albion in the Championship Table.
West Bromwich Albion Form
The Baggies are a rock in a way for Millwall with their current domination in their home ground. After displaying a great performance against the top-half side Bristol City, regardless of how The Albions were not able to rocket their performance and dropped their point with a tough 2-2 draw against Watford.
However, because of conceding at least a goal in most of their recent matches, West Brom will focus on the spaces back of their defense. The three-time Championship winner has won three out of 2 games at home this season. However, the away form is ironic to home records.
There is a lack of satisfaction among Millwall's fans regarding the current situation. The Lions are sitting in 11th place in the championship table and are ready to continue their winning streak this weekend after having a taste of victory against Rotherham.
In the sixth round of the championship, Millwall was crushed by Leeds United at their home by 3-0. Against Rotherham this week, Garry Rowett found some solutions to his team's offensive problems.
Head to Head
Millwall has been unbeaten against West Bromwich Albion with a 5-2 scoreline in all four matches since September 2021. Despite having a good scoring record, Albion's defensive problems are hurting them against Millwall in recent showdowns.
In Millwall's midweek victory against Rotherham, injuries forced Brooke Norton Cuffy and Kevin Nisbet to miss the match. Nevertheless, Shaun Hutchinson's injury concern remains a loophole in their defensive area.
After suffering an injury in April, there is no sign of returning for the Albion's American striker Daryl Dike on the field until December. However, West Brom manager Carlos Corberan has stabilized the attack and is not hurting with further injury concerns in the upcoming weekend.
All eyes are on Aidomo Emakhu and Romain Esse to have their names on the scoresheet after injury to Kevin Nisbet, who has scored two goals in the championship. The English winger Ryan Longman is looking like the best player of Millwall in recent matches and the Lions once again count on him to have some running spaces inside the heart of West Brom's defence.
John Swift is the second-leading goalscorer in the English Championship tournament with four goals, and his partnership with Brandon Thomas is a perfect combo for the team. The Baggies rely on John Swift, Brandon Thomas and Jed Wallace to bypass Millwall this weekend.
This weekend, Millwall is suffering from heavy injury concerns, and it is unclear how other players will score without Kevin Nisbet. However, there is nothing to worry about for West Brom. They are playing well and are looking forward to the weekend with a fully determined squad to host Millwall at Hawthorns Football Stadium.
