*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

The Sheff Wed vs West Brom odds indicate that West Brom are the favourites to win the match on Saturday which shouldn't come as a complete surprise when you consider the difference in league positions of the two clubs. However, that just means there is fantastic value to be had on a home win.

When you weigh everything up, Sheffield Wednesday have a great chance of coming out on top on Saturday. For starters, they are more in form than West Brom (four league matches unbeaten) and secondly, they are playing a team who have struggled on the road lately. West Brom have won just one of their last six matches away from the Hawthorns.

Carlos Corberan's men have perhaps been guilty of complacency in recent week which is why their playoff place is still to be confirmed. They realistically need one more win to cement that but they will do well to achieve that this weekend.

Sheff Wed preview: Can they complete the great escape?

Despite their impressive form of late, Sheffield Wednesday are battling to stay in the division without several key players. Leeds loanee, Ian Poveda, is unavailable for this one as is Mohamed Diaby. A fresh injury doubt revolves around Michael Ihiekwe who was forced off against Blackburn last time out.

Predicted lineup: Beadle (GK), Palmer, Iorfa, Famewo, Vaulks, Valentin, Bannan, Johnson, Musaba, Windass, Ugbo

West Brom preview: Looking to fall over the line

West Brom's position in the playoffs looked set a few weeks back but they are still searching for confirmation. For this one, Corberan will be delighted to welcome back top goalscorer, Brandon Thomas-Asante back to the starting XI. Can his goals fire the Baggies to the Premier League?

Predicted lineup: Palmer (GK), Furlong, Kipre, Bartley, Townsend, Yokuslu, Mowatt, Diagana, Wallace, Johnston, Thomas-Asante
