West Brom v Sunderland: Baggies target seventh heaven


Bookmark and Share

There was a time when West Brom couldn't buy a win against Sunderland. Well, that's not the case any more. The Baggies are unbeaten in their past six meetings with the Black Cats and most recently spanked them 4-2 at the Stadium of Light.

This afternoon Steve Clarke entertains Martin O'Neill's men looking to reach the magical seven games undefeated against Sunderland, but can they get the job done or will Sunderland exact revenge for that home defeat?

West Brom sensationally ended their seven-game winless run last time out at Anfield and start this game as favourites. But you have to wonder where the Baggies would have been in the table if it hadn't have been for that poor run of form.

Four wins in 10 have guided Sunderland out of the danger zone and they are just four points behind Stoke City in 10th place. However, they have lost their last two games on the bounce and haven't won at the Hawthorns in the Premier League since 2006.

But West Brom have seventh heaven in their sights. With both Liverpool and Swansea out of action this weekend, victory for the Baggies will see them back in contention for a European place.

But who will leave the Hawthorns with all three points?

West Brom v Sunderland; Kick Off 3pm February 23 2013
