Lawro is predicting a 2-0 win to the Baggies at BBC Sport.

He says that this is the start of a big week for Villa, local derby and crucial points needed then Bradford in the Cup.

“West Brom are not in the greatest form, having been the victims of that Reading comeback then going out of the FA Cup to QPR. I am not sure if Baggies boss Steve Clarke is the sort to read the riot act but now might be the time for him to get into one or two of his players, because they need to get back to the mentality they had at the start of the season, and make The Hawthorns a fortress again.”

Mystic Mug has cuts up and down his arm, is listening to The Smiths and is dressing like a Goth…. Yup, he`s given up on any positivity and agrees with Lawro… oh hang on, news just in, he`s looked at our woeful latest results but has taken heart from their latest results also and is now going to go for a 1-1 draw.

Mystic says the only reason is Lawro is beating him 8-5 so he needs to predict differently and he just can’t ‘back’ us to lose in a local derby!
