Consecutive home games give Albion the the chance to close the gap on leaders Newcastle. Terry Wills muses on a potential six-point haul.

Albion now find themselves lying second in the table behind promotion favourites Newcastle United. But the chance to consolidate, or even improve on the position, presents itself courtesy of two successive home games against Plymouth Argyle and Doncaster Rovers.

For their part Argyle have an impressive record at the Hawthorns and I’d hazard a guess RDM will be most unhappy should we fail to pick up what would be three very valuable promotion points.

Ditto the visit of next Tuesday’s opponents Doncaster Rovers. Yes they play very attractive football, not dissimilar to that laid down by Tony Mowbray when he was Albion’s manager, but again I imagine DI Matteo will be disappointed should his team fail to garnish another three-points. That said, Rovers comfortably saw off Cardiff City in their last match, so they'll have to taken very seriously.

For their part Newcastle face successive away matches at Plymouth followed by a tricky game against Cardiff.

It will be interesting to see just who Di Matteo chooses as his first choice strikers - goals win games and until the Baggies have a full complement of strikers to call on including ‘Tiny’ Miller, it seems as if the welcome return of Roman Bednar and Luke Moore, plus Chris Woods, will be expected to do the most vital element if games are to be won.
