Breaking News ! Sheffield Wednesday have been backed to maintain their improved Championship form since lockdown when they welcome West Bromwich Albion tomorrow evening. Ex-Owls midfielder David Prutton has tipped Garry Monk's team to pick up a point against the second-placed Baggies. Wednesday head into the contest on the back of an impressive win at Bristol City. Connor Wickham and Massimo Luongo netted to secure the Owls' first victory away from Hillsborough since early January. They have picked up four points from two matches since returning to action.

But Wednesday could be plunged into a battle for survival if found guilty of an English Football League misconduct charge relating to their controversial sale and leaseback of Hillsborough to chairman Dejphon Chansiri. Disciplinary proceedings kicked off last week, with an independent disciplinary commission to determine their fate.

Wednesday, 10 points above the relegation zone, have vigorously denied the charge, which has been hanging over them since November.
