West Bromwich Albion fans all know that this weekend will not be at all easy. The Baggies will be welcoming Brentford to The Hawthorns, and as the Bees sit 4th in the table they’ll be keen to get a win just as much as the home side will.

Ahead of the game, the West Brom Twitter account has tweeted a video of Harvey Barnes bagging for them in this exact fixture last season, although the fans aren’t all delighted to see Barnes on their club’s Twitter account, as he brings back memories.
The young Leicester City man managed to rack up an impressive nine goals and seven assists in his 26-game half-season with the Baggies (Transfermarkt) before the Foxes re-called him from loan last season, and how they would have loved to keep the winger.

Hope you ain’t just put a curse on us!!! Saturday’s gonna be a tough one as it is!!

Seeing Barnes was a blast from the past, but they can well and truly forget about him with a barnstorming win tomorrow.
