West Brom host Reading at the Hawthorns in the EFL Championship on Monday, looking to extend their winning run to three games. The Baggies followed up their 2-0 win over Bristol City on Boxing Day with an identical win over Preston North End on Friday.

With 35 points in 25 games, Carlos Corberán’s side are in 11th position in the league table, climbing up 13 places in just two months. Until October 29, West Brom were down in 24th after winning just two of their opening 17 matches and losing seven times. Since then, the West Midlands side have won seven of their next eight league games to turn their fortunes around in style.

Reading are just a point and a place ahead of them in the table as the draw with Norwich City on Friday trimmed the gap between these sides. Andy Carroll scored an 83rd-minute penalty to cancel out Adam Idah’s opener for the Canaries after 53 minutes and secure a point for the visitors.

West Brom vs Reading Prediction

West Brom have shown serious improvement in the last two months under Corberán and will be aiming to barge into the top 10 of the league standings.

Reading have also looked promising recently but their record against West Brom has been terrible and we expect the Baggies to continue in their upward trend with another win here.

Prediction: West Brom 2-1 Reading

West Brom vs Reading team news

Having made full use of his substitutions last time out, Corberan may be prepared to name the same West Brom XI for this fixture.

However, John Swift is pushing for a recall against his former side, particularly after supplying the assist for the Baggies’ second goal versus Preston.

Dike will also come into contention to take the spot of Brandon Thomas-Asante down the middle of the attack.

Yakou Meite could be restored to the Reading attack as a replacement for Lucas Joao, who rarely provided a threat versus Norwich.

Amadou Salif Mbengue is also an option in a defensive position if Ince opts to strengthen his backline given the size of the task awaiting his team in the West Midlands.
