West Brom centre back Jonny Evans is nursing a hamstring injury and is a doubt to face Crystal Palace.
Fellow defenders Gareth McAuley and Craig Dawson should be available after respective hamstring and ankle issues.
Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie is expected to make his first start for two months following a hip injury.
Bakary Sako is 50/50 to return after a hamstring problem, but Jason Puncheon is still out with a similar injury and Pape Souare is suspended.
James McArthur is likely to miss the rest of the season because of ankle ligament damage.
MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES
Jonathan Pearce: “West Brom fans will unfurl a banner proclaiming ‘Brunty, one of us’ and will sing his name in the 11th minute to mark Chris Brunt’s shirt number in a positive move to atone for the disgusting coin throwing at Reading.
“On the pitch, both clubs are in awful league form. West Brom have one win in six matches, Palace are winless in a league-high nine games and have scored just four goals in the process.
“But their FA Cup win at Tottenham has buoyed them. Emmanuel Adebayor has impressed in training. They might have enough to deepen The Hawthorns gloom, unless those home fans can prove really inspirational.”
WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY
West Brom head coach Tony Pulis: “You have to accept that if you’re not putting in the performances supporters want, and what they expect, then they’re going to let you know.
“They pay good money for it and I think as a manager, as players, as people involved in it, that’s acceptable.
“I think going the other way, throwing coins at people, is unacceptable.”
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: “I think both us and West Brom will be a little bit edgy because we both want to win this game, so it might be a little bit tense at times.
“They have good players and will make it difficult. It’s always hard to get a result at The Hawthorns.
“Tony knows our players well and will know some of the characteristics of our team, which will perhaps give him a slight advantage.”
West Brom were knocked out of the FA Cup by Reading but I am backing them to bounce back for a couple of reasons.
Baggies boss Tony Pulis is great when he has his back against the wall – he will want to shut up some of his own team’s fans who have been criticising him, and he is up against his old club Palace so he will have a point to prove against them too.
