West Bromwich Albion missed the chance to move to within two points of the automatic promotion places in the Championship as their fiery encounter at home against Cardiff City ended as a 1-1 draw.
Three red cards were shown at The Hawthorns with Baggies duo Alex Mowatt and Sam Johnstone given their marching orders, the latter dismissed shortly after full time after a fracas with Cardiff’s Aden Flint, who was also sent off.
Callum Robinson‘s 48th-minute strike was enough to cancel out James Collins‘s first-half opener and secure at least a point for Valerien Ismael‘s men, who have now failed to win any of their last three league matches.
West Brom also head into Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Brighton after losing four of their last five home matches in the competition, including all three against Premier League opposition during this spell.
In their most recent encounter against the Seagulls, the Baggies claimed a 1-0 victory in the Premier League last season thanks to a Kyle Bartley header, and they will be aiming to secure another win on home soil as they look to advance to the fourth round of the FA Cup for the fourth time in the last five years.
West Brom duo Mowatt and Johnstone are both suspended, with the latter to be replaced between the sticks by former Brighton stopper David Button or Alex Palmer.
The hosts will also be without Robert Snodgrass, Matt Phillips, Dara O’Shea and Kean Bryan, who are all suffering with injuries, while Semi Ajayi is away on international duty with Nigeria for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Robinson – who has scored five goals in his five starts in the FA Cup, four of which against non-league opposition – is expected to start in attack alongside Karlan Grant and Grady Diangana, while Darnell Furlong and Adam Reach could operate in wing-back roles ahead of Taylor Gardner-Hickman and Conor Townsend.
As for Brighton, Lewis Dunk and Jeremy Sarmiento remain long-term injury absentees, while Yves Bissouma is away on AFCON duty with Mali.
After four years at the Amex Stadium, Jurgen Locadia left the Seagulls on a permanent deal on Thursday, joining Bundesliga outfit VfL Bochum.
