Birmingham news Sheffield Wednesday vs West Brom betting preview MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - West Brom are winless since the start - can they get back to winning ways away at Sheffield Wednesday?
Breaking News ! Things are beginning to look a bit tense at the Hawthorns. West Brom have picked up just one point from a maximum six and are yet to score since the Championship resumed last month. They sit second and are behind leaders Leeds United by four points and that gap could get bigger if their form continues. Their defeat away at Brentford means the London side are now just two points from an automatic promotion spot and West Brom could find themselves in the play-offs if things do not change. Slaven Bilic's side travel to Hillsborough where they face a Sheffield Wednesday side who are unbeaten since the restart.

. Sheffield Wednesday have proven to be stern opponents since the restart, and I don’t think there’ll be much in it. Albion, for all their recent troubles in front of goal, have been defensively sound for some time. Who’s a good bet for 1st scorer? It’ll depend on who leads the line. Hal Robson-Kanu scored in the Baggies’ last win, against Preston, and if he starts here he’ll be the man I tip to open the scoring. Who’s on pens? Charlie Austin has tucked home a number of spot-kicks this season - including a last-gasp winning penalty against Sheffield Wednesday in the reverse fixture - but he hasn’t started a game since the win over Luton at the beginning of February. If he doesn’t start here, then it’ll be Robson-Kanu or Matheus Pereira. Will you keep a clean sheet? West Brom have kept six clean sheets in their last ten games, conceding just five goals in that time - one of them was a penalty and another an own goal. Without Steven Fletcher and Fernando Forestieri, the Owls don’t appear on paper as dangerous as they previously were. I fancy another Albion shut-out here. Will the absence of fans help or hinder? For West Brom, I think it will be, if anything, a help. Hillsborough normally has a sizeable, partisan crowd which can make for a daunting experience. In its absence, Albion may feel a little more comfortable than they otherwise would.
