Uwe Huenemeier is hoping to play his part in another promotion clincher.

The former Albion defender could help Paderborn back into the Bundesliga on Sunday.

The club he rejoined last summer occupy the second automatic spot ahead of the last round of games.

They are one point clear of Union Berlin going into the finale.

Paderborn are the bookies’ hot favourites to get the win they might need at Dresden, who are 13th in the table.

Union are also on the road as they visit tenth-placed Bochum.

Huenemeier left Paderborn after relegation from the top tier in 2015 and signed up for Albion’s push for promotion from the Championship.

He played in the run-in to the 2016-17 campaign, including the 2-1 win over Wigan which secured top-flight status.

Paderborn slipped into the third division in his absence but went up last year.

He has been a regular in central defence of late, including last weekend’s 4-1 home win over Hamburger SV.

Meanwhile Albion left-back Markus Suttner is enjoying game time on loan at Fortuna Dusseldorf in the Bundesliga.

They close their season at home to relegated Hannover on Saturday.

Suttner has played six league games for Fortuna, including all of the last four, and has scored one goal.

He played on the left of midfield in a 4-1-4-1 set-up last weekend as his side lost 3-2 at Borussia Dortmund, a result which kept the title race alive.

Albion colleague Pascal Gross is in touch with Suttner and said: “He is doing well.

“He is playing some games at the moment, he is at a good club, doing okay.”

Suttner and fellow full-back Ezequiel Schelotto, who both fell out of the first-team frame under Chris Hughton, might now be watching events at Albion with interest.

Schelotto saw his loan stint at Serie A’s bottom club Chievo cut short by a knee injury 18 minutes into his second start.
