Premier League match time comes to The Hawthorns when West Brom host Wigan on Tuesday, January 1.
This is a second leg match between the sides; the first on November 13, hosted by Wigan at the DW Stadium was won 1-0 by the hosts.
For Wigan, it was a poor game before the interval, but the introduction of Moses after the interval made a huge impact. He is a tremendous prospect for Wigan and had shown what he was capable of in Wigan's earlier midweek encounter with Liverpool. Garden Sheds Wigan That game was drawn but Wigan could even have dreamt of banking three full points thanks to the Nigerian born teenager. Had Di Santo been on target when he got a clear shot at goal, late in the game against Albion, the Latics could have won by a bigger margin.
For West Brom, the game marked what was arguably their worst showing since losing 6-1 to Chelsea at the start of the season. Their back-line had a casual look about it, and Albion were never able to hold on to the ball for long. They never appeared to be in control and that a single goal could seal the match for the winner was evident from the start. With just a solitary point from nine games including the one against Wigan, West Brom's Premiership campaign appeared to be falling apart, and with the prospect of meeting Stoke, traditionally their bogey, next, Albion would have been sorely disappointed with their showing on the day.
Head to head, in 7 league games between the sides, the Latics have established a 5-2 lead over Albion.
In their last 10 league games, West Brom have won 3, while losing the remaining 7. Wigan have won just one of their last 10, while losing 4 and drawing 5. West Brom have won 5 of 11 games hosted by them this season, while drawing 2 and losing the remaining 4. Wigan have won 2 of 11 games on the road, while drawing 4 and losing 5.
In their last performance, West Brom lost 2-0 away at Blackburn while Wigan lost 2-1 at home to Aston Villa.
On current form, this should be a hard-fought game, with West Brom enjoying a slight edge.
West Brom's starting eleven against Blackburn had Myhill, Jara, Tamas, Olsson, Cech, Brunt, Mulumbu, Thomas, Scharner, Morrison and Odemwingie. Bednar and Tchoyi were used as substitutes.
