After the disappointing run of results for West Brom in the Championship, Slaven Bilic will be tempted into changes against Sheffield Wednesday.

The Baggies boss made one change for the defeat at Brentford on Friday, with Grady Diangana coming in for Callum Robinson.

That didn’t work though, as Albion laboured to a 1-0 defeat at Griffin Park, struggling to create any significant chances in the final third.

With Brentford closing the gap to five-points and Leeds extending their lead at the top, the trip to Sheffield Wednesday has quickly become a must-win game.

It could have even more pressure on the clash though, with Brentford, Fulham and Leeds all playing the night before the Baggies.

So, what changes could Bilic make for the trip to Hillsborough? The main one that stands out is bringing in Kamil Grosicki out of the cold for a spot in the matchday squad.

There were also many questions asked of both Hal Robson-Kanu and Kenneth Zohore when they were leading the line on Friday, so Charlie Austin is also an option.

Many West Brom fans have called for Bilic to give Austin the chance to start on Wednesday evening, with his goalscoring ability potentially giving Albion a real boost in the final third.

Austin has found the net eight times this season, only two less than Robson-Kanu despite 14 of his 27 appearances coming off the bench.

The 30-year-old also averages more shots on goal than Robson-Kanu and Zohore according to WhoScored, with his poaching instinct surely a favourable trait right now.
