PREDICTION
It is now 20 Premier League games without a win for West Brom as new manager Alan Pardew has failed to give the club the boost that a new appointment usually brings. The Baggies will be lifted by a cup win over Exeter last weekend though and they may hold some belief that Saturday finally brings an end to this very barren run of results. Brighton stand in their way though and they will be looking to add further points to the board in their bid to keep them clear of the drop. If West Brom are to finally win again it must be soon, and if it’s not this weekend then you have to ask yourself when.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The only previous Premier League meeting between West Brom and Brighton took place last September with the AMEX Stadium as the setting. It was certainly a memorable afternoon for Seagulls fans as they witnessed their side earn a historic 3-1 win over what was then a side managed by Tony Pulis, a result which earned Brighton their first ever Premier League victory.
