Carlos Corberan has been chosen as the new head coach of West Brom, leaving no room for doubt among the club’s supporters about matters off the field.
The Baggies have changed from being likely relegation candidates to being legitimate dark horses for promotion. The team is currently in 16th place but is only five points behind sixth place with a game left to play.
Despite being in serious trouble at the beginning of November, West Brom will remarkably move into the top half of the table with a win on Wednesday.
At the weekend, they defeated Rotherham United to earn their fifth straight victory, scoring goals from three of their previously erratic attack-minded players.
Things are currently going perfectly for Corberan, and Daryl Dike has gained some extra fitness. No team in the division will be looking forward to playing the West Midlands team while they are performing at this level.
Before the World Cup break, Coventry City would have been compared to West Brom because the Sky Blues had set the example for them by winning four straight games to move into mid-table.
That momentum has since been lost, as Mark Robins’ team lost their first match 1-0 at Reading before shockingly blowing a three-goal lead against Swansea City at home on Saturday.
Coventry had a chance to climb as high as eighth place, but three goals conceded between the 68th and 84th minutes have dropped the team to 14th place.
On one hand, playing West Brom is the worst possible matchup for Coventry, but at least they are aware that they will need to step up their game to compete.
Despite the frustration of the weekend, Coventry will move into at least ninth position if they can end West Brom’s rampant run.
