Team News: West Bromwich Albion
Due to a mostly available squad, there is just a single fitness worry for the West Bromwich Albion manager Slaven Bilić to be concerned with. Jonathan Leko (Cruciate Ligament Injury) misses out for this game.
Here, we’re thinking that Sheffield Wednesday will have to work hard as a team to breach the defence of this West Bromwich Albion lineup who we think will get a goal themselves and run out victorious. We’re therefore predicting a very even contest with a 0-1 winning score for West Bromwich Albion when the full-time whistle blows. Hoping for a good game.
