PREVIEW | Wednesday -v- West Brom

PREVIEW | Wednesday -v- West Brom

I’m not sure we’re going to win this one.

If we do, we’re up to 5th, which is staggering given it doesn’t feel like we’ve done that well, but I guess in this tight league you can fly up with a few good results!

West Brom would go back top if they see us off, which shows this game could be even harder than the derby with Leeds last Friday.

Owls Team News

Barry Bannan misses out through suspension, so you’d imagine this is a big opportunity for Onomah to impress.

Marco Matias has joined the ever-extending list of injuries (which were entirely Carlos’ fault last year), with Daniel Pudil having a decision made late on.

Van Aken and Lee both remain a few weeks away, while Sam Winnall looks close to returning to training, which could be a massive boost.

Sign a deal!

Interestingly, Matt Penney won player of the month for September.
Please sign a new deal.



The Opponent’s Camp

As mentioned, West Brom are smashing this.
Dwight Gayle was an astute signing, and looks like he could easily fire them back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

It’s already looking likely to be a three way race between them, Middlesbrough and Leeds.

I’m not sure what else to say, they’re great, holding onto quality players like Matt Phillips and Jay Rodrigues has been good business.
