West Bromwich Albion

‘Stunning’ – Sky Sports pundit awed by ‘masterclass’ 24-year-old West Brom player



David Prutton has provided his prediction for West Brom’s Championship matchup against Bristol City this Saturday.

With 63 points as of right now, the Baggies are in fifth place in the standings and will participate in the Championship play-offs at the conclusion of the campaign.

In their last nine Championship games, Carlos Corberan’s team has only suffered one loss. Mikey Johnston, who joined on loan from Celtic, has had a huge influence and is largely responsible for their recent run of success.

Due to his desperate need for playing time at Celtic, the 24-year-old offensive midfielder was able to sign a loan deal with the Baggies in January thanks to Brendan Rodgers. Having made nine appearances so far, he has scored six goals and given one assist, demonstrating his immense popularity at the Hawthorns.

He scored two goals in the 4-1 victory over Huddersfield Town, which Prutton called a “masterclass” effort.According to Prutton’s EFL Predictions for Sky Sports, Johnston’s influence has been “amazing.”

“What a player Mikey Johnston looks like,” he remarked. Is he among the best January hires at this level that we’ve seen? He has had a tremendous influence for West Brom, and on Sunday at Huddersfield, he once again displayed his mastery.

Bristol City defeated Swansea by a close margin last time out, earning a crucial victory. On paper, this appears to be a home victory, but the Robins are not always a banker when they play the better teams. However, this should be a fantastic game for the Baggies.

Prutton believes that West Brom will win 2-0 on Saturday, which will increase their chances of qualifying for the playoffs.

The Republic of Ireland international has had difficulty making an impression at Celtic, and it’s now unknown what the future holds for him. He is undoubtedly a very gifted player, and occasionally a shift in surroundings can have a positive impact.

He has been perhaps West Brom’s best player in 2024, playing on the left wing. In addition to becoming a dangerous attacker from the wings, he has also become a prolific goal scorer. Regardless of where they play next season, Corberan’s top priority should be to sign him permanently next summer.

Celtic will ask for a hefty transfer fee in exchange for him, particularly following a fruitful loan period. Bringing Johnston on board permanently would be a bold move on the part of the Baggies; he has the ability to succeed in this league and perhaps even in the Premier League.
