After a comprehensive 3-0 home defeat to Leicester on their Premier League return, newly-promoted West Brom hope to avoid an early cup upset to League Two newcomers Harrogate.

Simon Weaver's men started their maiden campaign in England's fourth-tier with an emphatic 4-0 away win over Southend United. The week beforehand, they beat Tranmere Rovers on penalties to earn a tricky away trip against top-flight opposition.

Can they beat the odds and spring an unwelcome EFL Cup surprise for Slaven Bilic's side at the Hawthorns? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

West Brom vs Harrogate Town Betting Tips

West Brom were effectively played off the park by Leicester on MD1 at the weekend. 35% possession, just one shot on target, they were largely found wanting and gifted two second-half penalties which Jamie Vardy gratefully dispatched.

Although it's only been one game and some teams are still to play, they've done their survival chances no favours at all. Alongside Fulham, they look weak at the back and lack serious firepower to propel themselves forward like Sheffield United did last term. That's perhaps why Wednesday's fixture means a lot to them.

It represents a genuine opportunity for silverware, or at the very least, a deep cup run after an embarrassing 2-1 defeat by Millwall in R1 last season.

Harrogate have already bettered that and have nothing to lose, but enter this match full of good spirits after Aaron Martin's Man of the Match display. The 29-year-old scored one and created two assists during the aforementioned 4-0 thrashing on Saturday.

Can he deliver a similarly influential display against a Baggies backline likely to be rotated and not exactly in good form? This should be interesting.

West Brom vs Harrogate Town Correct Score Predictions

Simply put, West Brom cannot afford to lose this match. They face an away trip to Everton three days later in an early kick-off (12.30pm), so Bilic will probably rotate accordingly.

They won't be taking this fixture lightly though. Harrogate hope to spoil the party as underdogs for the second successive round. Judging by their recent results, it suits them.
