Writing for Sky Sports, ex-Owls man David Prutton has tipped Wednesday to secure a draw against Slaven Bilic's promotion contenders, backing a 1-1 scoreline.

Justifying his prediction, the 38-year-old claimed: "Sheffield Wednesday were really good in large parts of the game against Bristol City on Sunday, and looked as though they were the side really chasing the play-offs.

"West Brom will be concerned now. Another defeat and the gap to third could be closed again. They are struggling for goals, too, and I think they will be held by Wednesday."

When the two sides met back in November, the Baggies secured a dramatic late win, as Charlie Austin's 88th minute earned his side three points at the Hawthorns.
