WEST BROMWICH ALBION- SUNDERLAND
Albion are still not officially relegated, but that is just a matter of mathematics and the dreaded day will arrive soon. However, they are far from down hearted and continue to play with great spirit and adventure, despite losing in a six goal thriller at Eastlands last week, they could/should have been two up at the break and that is characteristic of how their season has gone. They will not change their principles and will continue to try and play football, they should be given every plaudit going for that, but on the other hand, they cannot defend and have looked very naive at that end of the pitch. It is impossible to see them conceding less that two at the moment, they will press forward from the off and the pace, movement and physical challenge of Cisse and Jones upfront for the visitors, is going to cause the home backline all kinds of problems.
Sunderland are desperate to collect the three points that would go a long way to cementing another season in the EPL and obviously, at this level, it doesn't come any easier than a trip to the Hawthorns. They have been a bit negative at times , especially on the road, which is why we get some juicy odds, but this fixture simply cannot be played that way and will be another end to end thriller. Goals for me.
6.5 points "over" 2.75 goals 2.35 asian line.
