West Brom – Brighton: Brighton and Hove Albion’s poor finishing of myriad chances has it back in a relegation scrap ahead of a visit to woeful West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Saturday (start time 10amET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Winless in seven, the Baggies are all but cooked without a win over Brighton.
The Seagulls are four points ahead of the bottom three and 12 clear of their 19th-place hosts.
It’s one of West Brom’s last chances to face a fellow bottom five side, and Brighton’s run-in isn’t much easier.

The Baggies’ loss of Semi Ajayi is big, at least as big of a defender’s loss as can be considered of a team that’s allowed 55 goals. Sam Johnstone remains the wild card but we said last week that Neal Maupay is due and he remains so. West Brom 0-2 Brighton.
