Sheffield Wednesday are closing in on a new striker – but too late to face Albion today.

The Owls will start with towering Austrian under-21 international Atdhe Nuhiu at the sharp end of their 4-3-3 or 4-5-1 formation.

They had hoped to have Stevie May on board from St Johnstone but that move has not yet gone through.

Keiren Westwood makes his debut in goal after a summer switch from Sunderland.

Giles Coke gets the nod ahead of Jose Semedo in midfield while former Albion loanee Joe Mattock is at left-back.

Sheffield Wednesday: Westwood; Palmer, Loovens, Lees, Mattock; Hutchinson, Coke, Lee; Maguire, Maghoma, Nuhiu. Subs: Kirkland, Semedo, McCabe, Zayatte, Floro, Madine, Kelhar.
