West Ham vs. West Brom

Preview of West Brom at West Ham

The Baggies travel to the home of the Hammers on the back of two defeats both of which were disappointing in their own ways. Firstly, the defeat at Blackpool would surely have been avoided had Michael Oliver made the correct decision and not sent off Pablo early on in the game. The defeat against City may also not have happened had the Baggies kept 11 versus 11 against the Seasiders. They looked strangely subdued in the first half against Man City and I can only put this down to tiredness.

Albion will be desperately looking to end their losing run but this is definitely a must win game for West Ham and their fans will probably expect nothing less than three points from a newly promoted side.

If the Baggies are to progress this season they will have to stop conceding needless goals and add to the one clean sheet they have achieved so far this season.

Scott Carson speaks:

"We need to move on and pick up results."

"We always feel we can score so to keep a clean sheet is worth a point and we`re confident we can hurt teams at the other end."

West Ham Team News:

Mark Noble misses out as do the injured Collison, Hitzlsperger, Ben Haim and Hines. However, Kieron Dyer could be about to make a start following a dreadful run of injuries.

Player to watch: Frederic Piquionne

The Baggies were interested in signing Piquionne in the summer but West Ham beat them to it and he will surely have gained confidence from the goal that he scored against Birmingham City at the weekend.

West Brom Team News:

The Baggies will be without the suspended Mulumbu and Jara. Miller also misses out through a thigh injury and Roman Bednar is struggling with illness.

hilst the inspirational Jonas Olsson is again missing through injury. On the positive front James Morrison and Stephen Reid are both fully fit and Reid could come in at right back with Shorey struggling following a cowardly tackle from Balotelli at the weekend.

Player to watch: Peter Odemwingie

Baggies Talisman Odemwingie has been out of the side for a few games through injury so expect something special from him to make up for it.

Ref Watch:

Mike Dean will be the main in the middle.

Match Prediction:

The Baggies to win 2-1

Next Fixture:

Away at Wigan Athletic on 13 November.
