Match preview: Owls v WBA

1 July 2020

After taking four points from six since the restart, the Owls will be looking to maintain their positive resumption this evening at Hillsborough when they host West Brom.

Wednesday got back to action with a 1-1 draw at home to Nottingham Forest before turning in an impressive display on the road against Bristol City on Sunday, where they scooped all three points with a 2-1 win.

For the Baggies, a 0-0 draw with Birmingham and 1-0 defeat to in-form Brentford has left Slaven Bilic’s side four points off league leaders Leeds and two points ahead of the third-placed Bees.

Here’s what you need to know ahead of the game in our detailed match preview:

TEAM NEWS

SWFC: Julian Börner was withdrawn at half time after suffering a dead leg at Ashton Gate on Sunday.

Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 0-3 West Brom

1 July 2020

The Owls’ impressive return to Championship duty was halted by West Brom, who emerged 3-0 winners at Hillsborough.

Charlie Austin opened the scoring against the run of play in the first half and Matheus Pereira netted twice after the break as the Baggies went through the gears.

Kadeem Harris hit the woodwork but the overall task was too great and the Baggies moved another step towards the Premier League.

Wednesday did kick off on the front foot, with Jordan Rhodes inches away from getting a connection on Jacob Murphy’s clever cross.

Murphy swung over a deep corner moments later and the in-form Connor Wickham nodded into the side netting.

Adam Reach was up next, firing a fierce effort narrowly wide as the Owls continued an encouraging start against the promotion hopefuls.

But the Midlanders are not challenging without reason and flexed their elevation credentials on 38 minutes.

Moses Odubajo tangled with Dara O’Shea in the area, the referee pointed to the spot, and Austin stepped up to send Joe Wildsmith the wrong way.

It was harsh on Wednesday, who looked by far the more likely, but it could have been 2-0 a minute before the break when Rekeem Harper unleashed from distance inches over the bar.

But in the second half, the visitors upped the ante and showed exactly why they have taken residence in the top two.

Controlling the game from midfield, West Brom probed consistently and the sense a second goal was coming rang true on 58 minutes.

Kieran Gibbs delivered a teasing cross right into the danger zone and the advancing Pereira glanced into the top corner.

But the Owls regrouped and came within a whisker of halving the deficit four minutes later. Harris hit a whistling drive from 25 yards that beat Sam Johnstone all ends up but the post came to the keeper’s rescue.

Wickham then saw a snapshot fly past the upright before Wildsmith was off his line sharply to thwart Kamil Grosicki at close quarters.

Grosicki was denied by Odubajo’s brave block in the latter stages but the Baggies would not be denied a third strike.

A loose ball landed kindly in the path of Pereira, who made no mistake with a low drive that flew into the roof of the net via Wildsmith’s outstretched foot.

Wednesday: Wildsmith, Palmer, Iorfa, Odubajo, Harris, Reach (Lee 62), Luongo (Nuhiu 62), Bannan (Hunt 86), Murphy, Wickham, Rhodes (Da Cruz 46)
