West Bromwich ambition in ending their recent poor run of results are facing another stern test this Wednesday, January 1, 2014 as they host Newcastle United side, that have been doing quite well so far this season. Haven't been snatching a win since early November in 2013, West Brom will be hoping that their luck will finally turn in the new year, though it won't be an easy task as their opponent are also hungry for victory.
Losing against Arsenal last weekend, Newcastle are looking to make a quick redemption this midweek as they are keen on keeping that challenge for European spot alive and kicking. After a rather slow start, Alan Pardew's men have been grabbing several positive results recently, apart from couple of games against top sides, including Gunners this past Sunday. With both teams looking really eager to pick up maximum points, this battle should provide tons of entertainment for any football lovers all over the globe.
West Brom finally ending their winless run with a slender home victory over Newcastle in that new year battle this midweek, thanks to a late penalty goal from Saido Berahino four minutes from time. It was close to be another failure to grab maximum points for the home side as they can't seem to find any way through their opponent's defense, but late in that game, luck seemingly turned into their favor as a spot kick was given and Berahino converted it perfectly.
