West Bromwich Albion v Swansea City Competition - Sky Bet Championship Venue - The Hawthorns Date - 8 December 2019 Kick off - Noon Following their disappointing home 1-2 defeat to fellow promotion hopefuls Fulham - their 5th loss at The Liberty this season - next up for the Swans is a trip to the Midlands to play top of the table West Brom. Against Fulham, Mitrovic, the Championship's leading scorer, took his Fulham tally this season to 15 goals thanks to two first-half strikes. The powerful Serb headed his team in front on 22 minutes and then doubled their advantage with a cool finish shortly before half-time. Swansea were unfortunate to be two goals down having been the better side for long periods, and they deservedly got back into the game through George Byers' 65th-minute header. But Fulham, who are third in the table, held on to close the gap on second-placed Leeds, while Swansea remain sixth. On Monday evening, Charlie Austin's controversial 90th-minute penalty sent West Bromwich Albion back to the top of the Championship as they snatched a last-gasp victory at Preston. Preston were adamant keeper Declan Rudd had not touched Baggies substitute Kyle Edwards but referee Oliver Langford pointed to the spot and Austin slotted home to send Albion two points above Leeds. The spot-kick gave West Brom a fifth successive victory but they left it late at Deepdale as injury-hit Preston, without a host of players including their entire first-choice back line, looked set to earn a point. Instead, Alex Neil's men saw their unbeaten home record ended and they remain sixth, just inside the play-off places but 11 points behind the table-topping Baggies. The Swans have played the Baggies on 43 previous occasions, winning 18, losing 16 and drawing the other 9. Turning to Sunday, I can see nothing other than a home win with the Swans losing the only unbeaten away record in the EFL. 3-1 to the Baggies.
