West Bromwich Albion welcome Sheffield Wednesday to The Hawthorns on Tuesday night (ko 8pm) where they'll be hoping to earn another three points following Saturday's emphatic 4-0 triumph at Preston North End. 

The Baggies battered Ryan Lowe's side at the weekend and had four different players on the scoresheet - Darnell Furlong, Alex Mowatt, Matty Phillips and Kyle Bartley. 

Visitors Sheffield Wednesday are back in the Sky Bet Championship having spent the last two campaigns in the third tier.

Tuesday's visitors head into the encounter off the back of a 3-0 home defeat to Sunderland on Friday night.

The opponents

Sheffield Wednesday's return to the second tier of English football certainly hasn't been a happy one after spending two years away. 

The Owls, who won the Sky Bet League One play-off final in dramatic circumstances in May, have collected just two points from their first nine games and are the only team yet to win a match in the Championship.

Tuesday night's guests were beaten 3-0 at home by Sunderland on Friday - their second successive defeat by that particular scoreline. 

Manager Xisco Munoz was appointed in July following former Baggies favourite Darren Moore's departure and will be desperate to turn his team's fortunes around. 

The 43-year-old Spaniard represented Valencia, Real Betis and Levante among others in his homeland during his playing days and has recently managed Watford, Huesca and Anorthosis Famagusta. 

The Owls have endured a difficult start to life back in the Championship

One to remember

Charlie Austin was Albion's hero the last time Sheffield Wednesday came to town in November 2019.

The forward converted an 88th-minute penalty to hand the Baggies a 2-1 win in the Sky Bet Championship.

Hal Robson-Kanu scored Albion's opener, while Steven Fletcher was on target for the visitors from the spot. Wednesday's Liam Palmer was also dismissed right at the very end of the encounter.
