Wednesday boss Brian Laws has insisted his Owls side will be going in to the clash with promotion hopefuls West Brom with an ‘all or nothing’ approach.
Wednesday are still within six points of the Championship play-off spots and a victory at the Hawthornes could take the Owls to just three points from the to six having played a game extra.
And Laws revealed that his side will be giving it their all as they look to have something to play for in the last month of the campaign.
‘Although there are a lot of games coming up we are quite happy,’ Laws told the official SWFC site.
‘We are very confident going into the game against West Brom. We want to go and win and the players want to give a good performance. We are going in with the approach its all or nothing. I’m sure it will be an entertaining one if anything.’
The Owls go in to the clash full of confidence following nine games unbeaten and three straight wins – including two on the road – and Laws is hoping to take advantage of the Baggies’ recent poor home form.
He added: ‘They have lost three out of four games at home which tells you things aren’t going to plan. I’m sure when they look at us, one of the in-form teams of the division it isn’t a good time to be playing us. We’ll be going there with nothing to fear and I think Tony Mowbray will be the most worried one on the day.’
And the Owls gaffer is still keeping Wednesday’s slim hopes of a play-off spot alive should they collect a positive result from tonight’s clash in front of the Sky cameras.
‘If we win, the teams above us will need to slip up. The Likelihood of play-offs is highly unlikely but you never give up unless it’s mathematically impossible. If we draw or lose against West Brom it will be over, but if not then its game on.’
