West Brom will be looking to take a step closer to securing automatic promotion to the Premier League when they host to Derby County on Wednesday night.

The Baggies impressed in a 4-2 win at home to Hull last time out, but they face a tricky test against an in-form Derby side who are looking to book a play-off place with just five games of the campaign remaining.

West Brom Form


Three defeats in five games had threatened to stop West Brom's bid for automatic promotion. A 3-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday, followed up by a 4-2 victory over Hull, means the Baggies are on course for a top-two finish and could still beat Leeds United in the race to be crowned Champions.

West Brom Team News


Kieran Gibbs (hamstring) limped out of the win over Hull and is set to miss the game, while Jonathan Leko remains doubtful. Ahmed Hegazi is suspended after his red card at the weekend.

Derby Form


An injury-time equaliser rescued a point for Derby against fellow promotion-hopefuls Nottingham Forest at the weekend. Prior to Saturday’s draw, Derby had won their five in a row in the league.

Derby Team News


Krystian Bielik and Jack Marriott missed out again at the weekend and may not be ready to return, while Andre Wisdom remains unavailable. Tom Lawrence and Martyn Waghorn are suspended.

West Brom vs Derby Head to Head

West Brom vs Derby Match Up


West Brom have impressed in their last two matches after that brief blip in June. They won’t have things their own way against an in-form Derby side, however, and this could be tight.
