Recent respective form guides

West Bromwich Albion's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Baggies have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Blackpool's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. These low-scoring games have seen just 5 goals scored and conceded.

West Brom. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 22 points from 21 matches. Blackpool lie just outside the playoff positions in the Barclays Premier League, picking up 28 from their 20 games so far.
