Match Preview | West Bromwich Albion (H)

17 February 2022

Sponsored by

The Hatters are back at home Saturday afternoon as they welcome West Bromwich Albion to Kenilworth Road.

Looking to make amends following defeat against Birmingham City last weekend, Town will hope to continue their strong home form when the Baggies visit.

We encourage all supporters at Saturday's game to stand and join the applause in the 75th minute in memory and celebration of Barry Lake's life, who sadly passed away while travelling to watch the Hatters against Birmingham City last weekend.

 

The opposition:

Now under the management of Steve Bruce, West Brom will hope to regain a place in the play-off places having found themselves three points behind to date. 

The manager has taken one point from his opening two matches in charge of the Baggies, following their draw with high-flying Blackburn on Monday night.

 

Last time we met:

West Brom were 3-2 winners in the last meeting between the two teams. The home side raced into a three-goal lead before goals from Harry Cornick and Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu set up a grandstand finish.

Highlights from that match can be found below...
