Bitesize Prediction: Sheffield Wednesday vs West Brom – 27/04/24

Competition: Championship

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 4/5 @ BetUS

In what is a season-defining affair for Sheffield Wednesday this weekend, the Owls will welcome West Brom to Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Sheffield Wednesday might have marked their Championship return in the midst of a public nightmare, the Owls have certainly come roaring back since they appointed Danny Rohl back in October. Gaining plenty of plaudits for their rugged approach and certainly breathing life back into the charge for Championship safety, the Owls will know that they face another must-win showdown here. Last seen putting in a stellar performance away at fellow strugglers Blackburn as they secured a 3-1 romp, fans around Hillsborough will be calling on a repeat display here. Unbeaten in all of their previous four second-tier appearances and suffering just a single Championship defeat since returning from March’s international break, Wednesday have also gained a reputation for their lively outcomes. Including an action-packed 2-2 stalemate against Norwich on April 9th, Saturday’s hosts have seen all of their last three outings finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, while West Brom might have all but mathematically confirmed their play-off ticket, the Baggies do have the feel of a squad limping their way over the finish line. Last seen suffering a 2-1 loss away at Leicester, Carlos Corberan’s men have collected just a single victory from any of their previous six Championship appearances. Opening up April with consecutive 2-2 stalemates against Watford and Stoke, the former Huddersfield boss will have a headache over his side’s extended defensive issues. Including another action-packed 2-2 draw against QPR on March 6th, West Brom have registered just a single clean sheet from any of their previous 12 Championship appearances over the past two months. With the chance to officially punch a top-six finish here, neutrals could be treated to an enjoyable affair this weekend. With the Baggies seeing all of their last six away fixtures finish with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
