Later this evening West Brom fans will be watching on at Bristol City come to The Hawthorns in the Championship, and the Baggies will be looking to extend their gap at the top of the table and continue their incredible streak. However, it won’t be easy.

This fixture last saw was a six-goal thriller, with the Baggies coming out on top 4-2 on the night over a year ago in September 2018. On that day the Hawthorns saw Jay Rodriguez bag twice, and now the Baggies face the same fixture tonight.
This time, though they go into the clash without Rodriguez, or indeed without Dwight Gayle or Harvey Barnes, who bagged the other two goals in that 4-2 win, and the fans have been quick to reminisce over Rodriguez’s brace from that night.
Is Rodriguez missed this season?

The Baggies would love to Rodriguez back at The Hawthorns, although it doesn’t look like that’ll happen anytime soon.
