Albion to field strongest side

Albion to field strongest side

Selhurst Park is an interesting place to be tonight, a match whose outcome could decide the fate of another Championship side.

Judging by the comments coming into the site, Sheffield Wednesday fans are looking for ex-Owl Chris Brunt to do them a favour and take all the points, leaving them with one more chance at Championship survival.

As far as Albion are concerned, there is the small matter of revenge for the 1-0 defeat by Palace earlier in the season.

Palace won at The Hawthorns in September thanks to the only goal of the game from Alassane N'Diaye and could survive relegation by getting a win tonight.

Roberto Di Matteo expects Scott Carson and Gianni Zuiverloon to be fit for game and is looking to play his strongest side as Albion go on to chase the record for the club's highest season points tally. The Baggies need only a draw to set a new club-record.

RDM said on the official site: 'We're going to be professional, I am going to be playing the best team available to me and we have to expect a hostile atmosphere because they are down there fighting to stay in the league.

'They will be playing at home and they need points so I would expect them to be positive rather than negative.

'It could be an advantage or at least give us a chance to exploit the space.'

The Sheffield blue and whites would expect nothing less.
