WATFORD travel to West Brom looking to win their fourth away Premier League fixture on the spin.
Marco Silva’s side have been superb away from Vicarage Road, seeing off Swansea, Southampton and Bournemouth to fire them up to 6th in the table.
They bounced back from a 6-0 drubbing by Man City to beat the Swans in their own backyard and will look to do similar to the Baggies.
Tony Pulis has his team well drilled and they were unlucky not to get anything from the Emirates on Monday night as a combination of refereeing decisions and poor finishing cost them.
They sit 12th and haven’t won in four, which included a 3-1 away defeat to Brighton.
What time is kick-off?
THE game will be held at the Hawthorns on Saturday September 30.
Things gets underway at 3pm.
