West Brom have no new injury worries ahead of the game against the Hammers.

Caretaker head coach Michael Appleton has said that Marek Cech should be available after recovering from a groin strain.

Graham Dorrans, who pulled out of the Scotland squad that played Northern Ireland in midweek, should have shaken off his ankle knock in time.

West Ham will be without calf injury victim Robbie Keane for a month.

James Tomkins (calf) and Matthew Upson (Achilles) are doubts but Manuel da Costa is available after coming through last weekend's match unscathed despite missing the previous four months with an ankle injury.

Long-term absentee Thomas Hitzlsperger (thigh) played an hour in the reserves this week but is unlikely to be risked.

West Brom (from): Carson, Cech, Ibanez, Morrison, Barnes, Brunt, Reid, Myhill, Fortune, Dorrans, Shorey, Thomas, Mulumbu, Zuiverloon, Meite, Odemwingie, Fortune, Tchoyi, Scharner, Thomas, Cox, Vela, Tamas, Olsson, Jara.

West Ham (from): Green, Jacobsen, Gabbidon, Reid, Tomkins, Bridge, Upson, Faubert, O'Neil, Noble, Parker, Obinna, Boa Morte, Piquionne, Kovac, Ilunga, Boffin, Cole, Sears, Ba.
