Bluebirds look to end four-year wait against Baggies

The last time Cardiff City beat West Brom was more than four years ago.

28 January, 2020, to be precise.

At the time, West Brom were top of the Championship table, whereas hosts Cardiff were mid-table.

Callum Paterson, who now plays for Sheffield Wednesday, put the Bluebirds ahead early in the second half.

The Baggies equalised in the 61st minute through former Premier League striker Charlie Austin who netted from the penalty spot.

But Lee Tomlin scored a superb free-kick 15 minutes later to earn Cardiff all three points.

Since that day, West Brom have beaten Cardiff twice and they have drawn on three occasions.

Fast forward to present day and the teams are in a similar situation. West Brom sit fifth in the table and Cardiff are currently mid-table in 14th.
