Match preview: West Brom v Wednesday

28 December 2018

The Owls head to in-form West Brom on Saturday and here is’s match preview;

A rejuvenated Wednesday travel to West Brom this weekend after back to back league wins over Preston and Middlesbrough.

It’s the first time the Owls have picked up consecutive victories since August.

But Lee Bullen’s side face one of the toughest Championship challenges in the form of the Baggies, who have won six of their last eight and are unbeaten since early November - their longest unbeaten run since 2007/08.

West Brom have also scored in every home fixture during 2018.

Team news

Owls: Wednesday will run the rule over Josh Onomah and Lucas Joao ahead of the trip to The Hawthorns.

Onomah came on from the bench at The Riverside but pulled up with injury midway through the second half.

Likewise with Joao, the striker was replaced after 14 minutes and will be assessed.

West Brom: Leading marksman Dwight Gayle is a doubt with a hamstring injury.

The 13-goal striker was replaced after ten minutes by Hal Robson Kanu in their 2-0 win over Wigan on Boxing Day.


The clash at The Hawthorns is a complete sell out.

Wednesday’s allocation of 2,737 sold out last week, while the hosts have confirmed the stadium is a sell-out all round, with the final few seats snapped up by Baggies fans on Friday afternoon.
