West Bromwich Albion vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features the side in third entertaining a team who have won back-to-back matches. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

West Brom stretched their unbeaten run to eight and won their third consecutive match as they defeated Wigan 2-0. Jay Rodriguez grabbed a brace through the expected goals data suggests they was little to choose between the duo.

Sheffield Wednesday made it back-to-back wins under caretaker boss Lee Bullen with a 1-0 road success at Middlesbrough. These two sides were short on quality but an Adam Reach effort proved the difference.

The reverse fixture came at the start of October and it ended in a 2-2 draw as the Baggies netted two in the last five minutes to claim a point. Adam Reach and Fernando Forestieri scored for the Owls and Harvey Barnes and an own-goal for the Black Country outfit.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

West Brom are strong favourites to win this game and despite winning six of the last eight I am open to taking them on. They have won just two of their last five at home and take on a Sheffield Wednesday side who just picked up three points at Middlesbrough. The Owls seem to have a good spirit around them under caretaker Lee Bullen and look worth taking alongside the draw in the double chance market.

Adam Reach is the leading light for the Yorkshire side and looks the player capable of producing the magic. I like the look of him to net at any time against a Baggies defence that has kept just one home clean sheet in the last seven.

West Bromwich Albion Preview

The Baggies have taken nine points from their last three and 20 out of the last 24 available to keep the pressure on the top two. They sit in third place three points behind Norwich in second and four above Sheffield United in fourth.

At the Hawthorns, the Black Country side are unbeaten in their last five through three of these have ended in draws. Six of the last seven at this ground have seen both teams find the back of the net.

Six of the last nine goals that West Brom have scored in the Championship have come before half-time. They have scored at least one goal in the final 21 minutes in each of their previous four.

 

West Bromwich Albion Team News

Kyle Bartley (knee) and Dwight Gayle (hamstring) are doubts ahead of this fixture.

 

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

Back-to-back 1-0 victories following the sacking of Jos Luhukay has lifted the mood around the Owls. They sit in 16th nine points above the relegation places and they must decide if they want to continue in their pursuit of Steve Bruce or reward the man currently in caretaker charge, Lee Bullen.

Away from Hillsborough, victory last time out for the Yorkshire put to an end a five-game winless run. They have found the back of the net at least once in their last three on the road and eight of ten.

Sheffield Wednesday have not conceded a first-half goal in any of their last four in the Championship. Seven of the last nine that they have scored have come after the half-time break.

 

Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Lucas Joao (unknown) and Fernando Forestieri (foot) are doubts while Sam Winnall (hamstring), Kieran Lee (knee) and Gary Hooper (groin) are long-term absentees.
