Baggies to take the win
The Baggies might have lost Bruce's first match in charge but a trip to Bramall Lane was always going to be a tough one. Here they are at home with the fans inside and hosting a Blackburn side that have lost their last two. On top of that fact, you've also got the head to head record to consider. West Brom have won two of the last three meetings between the sides drawing the other. It means they haven't lost to Blackburn since 2019 and not at home since 2010.
Someone will fail to score
Our next tip for this match is that at least one team will fail to score and when you look at the form book, it's pretty clear to see why we think that will happen. West Brom haven't been involved in a game where both teams scored since their FA Cup tie on January 8th; that was six games ago. Blackburn's form is similar. Like the Baggies they last saw both teams score in the FA Cup in early 2022. For them though that was seven games ago. With such form, surely we'll see at least one clean sheet.

West Brom vs Blackburn: It's predicted lineup time
This is a game between two out of form teams that still harbour promotion ambitions. For West Brom, it's all about the top six. For Blackburn, a streak of wins will see them right in the mix for automatic promotions.
West Brom Predicted Lineup
West Brom might have made a poor start to life under Steve Bruce but it was always going to be a tough first match. If they can get a win over promotion hopefuls Blackburn then it could generate plenty of positive vibes amongst the fans.
Predicted lineup – Johnstone, Furlong, Clarke, Ajayi, Townsend, Mowatt, Reach, Grant, Diangana, Molumby, Carroll
Blackburn Predicted Lineup
Blackburn remain in the hunt for promotion but their recent form, which has seen them go winless in three, has seen their top two chances decrease considerably. A win here would send a statement though.
Predicted lineup – Kaminski, van Hecke, Wharton, Giles, Ayala, Zeefuik, Travis, Rothwell, Dolan, Buckley, Brereton-Diaz
