West Brom boss makes admission that will give Sheffield Wednesday fans confidence



The promotion-chasing Baggies know that a victory on Saturday will virtually guarantee a spot in the top six, barring an unbelievable swing in goal differential in Hull City’s favor. Naturally, their hosts, who moved up from the bottom three last weekend and are now one point above the drop zone, will be looking to gain three points themselves.

As the two teams prepare for the penultimate round of the season, they are fighting to fulfill quite different goals. A massive 25 points and 16 league positions divide them. But the league table masks the extraordinary resurgence enjoyed by Wednesday after Danny Röhl’s arrival to the club.

“When you look at the table, you will see Sheffield Wednesday in 21st position and West Bromwich Albion in fifth position,” former Leeds United boss Corberan stated. On the other hand, if the table were based on the previous 25 games, they would have only lost by three points to us.

This indicates that despite having a slow start to the league earlier in the season, they are one squad that is playing well. They are a very competitive team that is currently enjoying great success.

Speaking to West Brom’s official website, Corberan emphasized the necessity for his players to enjoy what he characterized as a ‘play-off’ atmosphere at a sold-out Hillsborough. The Baggies are winless in two matches and will be eager to improve their form heading into a possible post-season campaign.

“For a whole bunch of other reasons, we cannot underestimate Sheffield Wednesday, and they cannot underestimate us,” he said. They cannot underestimate us because we are battling to obtain a result which would put us closer towards our aim of clinching a spot in the play-offs.

“They will try to earn the result which takes them closer to their aim, which is staying in the Championship. Both teams have tremendous ambitions to play for and both teams are going to try their best to attain them.”
