What Trueform says about the Premier League relegation battle
The Potters must now hope new manager Paul Lambert can inspire an upturn in fortunes following a run of just one win in nine games, which has left them third from bottom on 20 points.
City failed to persuade Derby’s Gary Rowett, Espanyol’s Quique Sanchez Flores and Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill to take the job.
However, vice-chairman John Coates said: “We were determined to appoint someone with Premier League experience or an extensive knowledge of English football.
“Paul has been successful in management at clubs with a strong and stable background and with local ownership – the kind of foundation we are able to give to our managers.
“Paul greatly impressed us with his knowledge of our squad and had a clear plan of how he would improve our results.”
The former Norwich, Aston Villa, Blackburn and Wolves chief does have the benefit of a kind fixture list coming up, with home games against Huddersfield, Watford and Brighton featuring in the next four matches.
Baggies finally end barren run
West Brom are Evens to be relegated after Alan Pardew secured his first Premier League victory as Albion boss with a 2-0 defeat of Brighton.
The Baggies now have 19 points and Pardew said: “It is a relief but we’ve had some really good performances here without getting the three points.
“I thought the team played extremely well, considering the pressure we were under.”
Brighton’s woeful away form continues to see them slide down the table, with the Seagulls drawing a blank in front of goal for the sixth straight time on the road – a run which includes five defeats.
They are on 23 points and quoted at 7/4 for a quick return to the Championship, with Chris Hughton concerned by an inability to defend set plays at The Hawthorns.
Fellow new boys Huddersfield are also 7/4 to fall after a 4-1 home loss to West Ham left them on 24 points.
Newcastle complete the trio of promoted teams now in trouble, with the Magpies on 23 points following a 1-1 home draw with Swansea and available at 11/4 in bwin’s Premier League relegation odds.
The Swans are as short as 11/50 to go down after that result left them rooted to the foot of the table on 17 points.
