West Brom will be looking to build upon an impressive result, which can be considered one of the standout performances of the season in the Championship. Despite facing a daunting task against high-flying Preston North End, Carlos Corberan's team emerged victorious with a resounding 4-0 win at Deepdale. This victory extends their unbeaten run to four games, although it is their first win in this streak. Despite an inconsistent start, West Brom find themselves in eighth place, just three points away from the playoffs. After two unsuccessful attempts at promotion, West Brom, in their third consecutive season in the Championship, are hoping for a better outcome this time under new manager Corberan. Although they reached the playoff final in 2022 with Huddersfield Town, they aim for a higher league position this season. Furthermore, West Brom heads into this fixture having maintained an unbeaten record against Sheffield Wednesday since 2007, winning the last two encounters. With the current turmoil at Wednesday, West Brom's chances of success have been significantly bolstered.
West Bromwich Albion Predicted Lineup
Palmer; Furlong, Kipre, Bartley, Pieters, Mowatt; Phillips, Yokuslu; Diangana, Wallace, Swift

In a recent public statement, Dejphon Chansiri, the owner of the club, expressed his dissatisfaction with the fans, accusing them of treating him unfairly. Chansiri further announced that he will no longer provide financial support to the club, suggesting that those who criticize him should take charge if they believe they can do a better job. The atmosphere among the fans has drastically changed since their thrilling victory in the playoff final last season. Chansiri's outburst occurred just before Wednesday's match against Sunderland, and the team suffered a 3-0 defeat within half an hour of his statement. This loss adds to a poor start for Xisco's team, who have only secured two points out of nine games and currently sit at the bottom of the league table. With the worst goal difference in the league, the six-point gap to safety appears significantly challenging, making it crucial for Xisco to orchestrate a remarkable turnaround in order to salvage his position as manager.
Sheffield Wednesday Predicted Lineup
Vazquez; Bernard, B Diaby, Famewo; Pol Valentin, Hendrick, Byers, Paterson; Musaba, Gregory, Buckley
