West Brom vs Sheffield Wednesday predictions: Baggies to down hapless Owls
Promotion-hopefuls West Brom host struggling Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday evening (8pm kick-off) and this could turn out to be another disappointing outing for the Owls.
The Baggies ended a run of three straight draws with a thumping 4-0 victory over Preston at Deepdale, a result that has taken Carlos Corberan's side to within striking distance of the play-off positions at this early stage of the season.
As for the Owls, they were defeated 3-0 at home by Sunderland last time out and last season's League One play-off winners are yet to pick up a win from nine attempts to leave them bottom of the standings.
Josh Maja is set to miss a fourth game in a row for West Brom because of an ankle problem, while Adam Reach is unavailable due to a muscle injury and Daryl Dike is also sidelined.
The Owls are without the services of Mohamed Diaby and Mallik Wilks, who are both still a couple of weeks away from returning.
West Brom are on a four-game unbeaten streak heading into this contest, having recorded draws against Bristol City, Watford and Millwall before thumping Preston 4-0.
The Baggies have kept three clean sheets in their last four outings and have taken seven points from a possible 12 on offer at The Hawthorns this season.
Sheffield Wednesday are the only side in the Championship yet to win this term and they sit bottom of the table on two points, leaving them six points from safety.
The Owls have scored just one goal in their last five assignments and they are the lowest scorers in the division with just five goals.
The Owls already look destined for a return to League One and manager Xisco Munoz, who was only appointed this summer, may only be a couple of more bad results from getting the chop.
It has been a dismal start to the campaign and the Steel City outfit are unlikely to get anything out of this trip to The Hawthorns, a stadium they have not triumphed at since 2007.
West Brom have been solid at the back with three clean sheets in their last four and they finally clicked in the final third last time out, sticking four past Preston.
The Baggies should have more than enough to get the victory but, to add some value to this selection, throw in a clean sheet to be recorded against the division's lowest scorers.
