Sunderland boss Steve Bruce will be without Fraizer Campbell and Titus Bramble for the game.

Campbell is due to see a specialist after twisting his knee in training last Friday, although initial scans have indicated there is no lasting damage, while Bramble could be facing several weeks on the sidelines with a knee cartilage problem.

However, loan signing Nedum Onuoha is available after being ineligible for last weekend's 5-0 drubbing at parent club Manchester City, while Kieran Richardson (hamstring), Phil Bardsley (knee) and Sulley Muntari (calf) are expected to be fit.

West Brom's Graham Dorrans is still recovering from an ankle injury and while head coach Roy Hodgson is pleased with the midfielder's progress, he has not set a date for his return.

James Morrison is available after recovering from a thigh injury picked up in training.

Sunderland (from): Mignolet, Gordon, Onuoha, Bardsley, Angeleri, Ferdinand, Mensah, Turner, Muntari, Cattermole, Richardson, Riveros, Henderson, Malbranque, Elmohamady, Sessegnon, Zenden, Colback, Gyan, Welbeck, Noble, Knott, Adams, Lynch.

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