Matches to Watch This Week

With the season beginning to wind down – the bulk of the league only have 12 matches left in the season – clashes between clubs at the top of the table will obviously carry more weight.

First, our nominal “Match of the Week” features two of the highest scoring club in the Championship, with West Bromwich Albion (64 goals, 2nd most) hosting our new #1 Sheffield United (58 goals, 3rd). When the clubs met back in December, West Brom managed to defeat the Blades in Sheffield, so I’m sure the visitor this week wants to return the favor this time around. West Brom will be playing for the second time when the clubs meet, so that may play a factor, but it should be an exciting match regardless.

Second, the hottest club in the Championship – Bristol City – looks to extend their seven-match winning streak (and 13-match unbeaten streak) against the club that currently resides at the top of the league table Norwich City. It seemed that the Canaries had righted their ship, starting 2019 on a six-match unbeaten streak of their own. But a loss to Preston North End last week snapped that streak, and though they recovered with a 4-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers over the weekend, questions remain with the league leaders.

Despite leading the league, they haven’t been at the top of our weekly power rankings since Week 17 after an unexpected draw to this Bristol City club, so maybe they can use that for motivation to try and get back to the top of our Power Rankings. The clubs care about those things, right?

Until next time…
