It’s already been a frantically-paced start to the Championship season, but focus quickly shifts to the EFL Cup’s starting pistol on Thursday, as these two Premier League promotion hopefuls meet at the Hawthorns for a chance to put together a fairytale cup run and potentially produce something special.

Steve Bruce will no doubt be itching to resume the Championship season having drawn his opening two games, with an away trip to Blackburn awaiting him on Sunday, but he is certainly no stranger to causing a cup splash, having reached the FA Cup final with Hull City in the 2013/14 season.

Sheffield United are faring slightly better than the Baggies in the Championship so far, currently sitting just a place outside the play-off spots having bounced back from an opening-day defeat to Watford with a 2-0 win over Millwall. And although a six-time finalist of the FA Cup, the Blades have never before reached the final two of the League Cup.
