Chris Brunt returns to his former club and hopes to help West Brom claim a vital victory and top spot in the Championship.
Chris Brunt reflects on some of the reasons for West Brom's success so far this season:
'A lot of our training has been based around trying to make us better defensively as a team, which is an important part of the game... we have been a lot more solid at the back this season. That has played a part in us getting some results... hopefully we can keep that going throughout the season.'
Sheffield Wednesday will be without midfielder Tommy Miller, who is still struggling with a hamstring problem.
Wednesday are without a win in five matches and could do with a player of Brunt's ability. Recent loan signing striker Warren Feeney could be pivotal.
Injuries aplenty with Koren, Bednar, Thomas, Mattock, Martis, and Teixeira all doubtful.
The Northern Ireland international has to take on the responsibility for this one. Still only 24, Brunt is already regarded as one of the more senior players in the Albion dressing room and he will need all of his club and international experience to try and collect a fourth successive win against the club where he spent just over three seasons.

Sheff Weds 0 West Brom 1 (Phillips)
With Newcastle playing on the same day, for once, the pressure is on to get the three points and top spot. We think our defenders might blink first and leave us with a nervy 2-2.
