West Brom's leading scorer Peter Odemwingie is a major doubt.

The four-goal Nigeria international is still struggling to overcome the knee injury suffered against Bolton three weeks ago.

If he is ruled out, Marc-Antoine Fortune is again set to deputise after helping Albion to a 2-2 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend.

Winger Jerome Thomas is in contention for a recall to the starting line-up after fully recovering from a calf problem.

Fulham striker Andy Johnson is available for the trip.

The 29-year-old looks set to make his first appearance since January after recovering from shoulder, knee and hip injuries.

The Cottagers are suffering an injury crisis in midfield, though, with Simon Davies (ankle), Danny Murphy (abductor strain), Dickson Etuhu (ankle) and Damien Duff (calf) out.

Jonathan Greening, Chris Baird, Zoltan Gera and Clint Dempsey are likely to form the midfield in their absence.

Albion (from): Carson, Jara, Tamas, Olsson, Shorey, Scharner, Mulumbu, Tchoyi, Morrison, Brunt, Fortune, Thomas, Bednar, Dorrans, Myhill, Cox, Ibanez, Reid, Odemwingie.

Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Stockdale, Kelly, Pantsil, Salcido, Baird, Hangeland, Hughes, Halliche, Gera, Riise, E Johnson, A Johnson, Greening, Dikgacoi, Kamara, Dembele.
