Newcastle will be without Jonas Gutierrez for the game after he damaged a thigh muscle during last weekend's 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

Leon Best has returned to training after recovering from an ankle problem, but Cheick Tiote will not be risked again, while Kevin Nolan (ankle), Steve Harper (knee) Mike Williamson (broken arm), Hatem Ben Arfa (double leg fracture), Danny Guthrie (shin) and Dan Gosling (also knee) remain on the sidelines.

West Brom are likely to hand a rare taste of first-team action to teenagers James Hurst and George Thorne as they finish their campaign at Newcastle with the pressure off.

Full-back Hurst made his Premier League debut against Fulham in January, one of three first-team appearances this season, while midfield playmaker Thorne will be hoping for a top-flight debut with the Baggies comfortably clear of the enthralling relegation battle.

Scotland midfielder Graham Dorrans remains on the sidelines due to an ankle injury, but is hoping to return to light training with the squad ahead of the summer break.

Newcastle (from): Krul, Soderberg, Simpson, Ferguson, Enrique, Coloccini, S Taylor, R Taylor, Barton, Vuckic, Tavernier, Richardson, Lovenkrands, Shola Ameobi, Ranger, Kuqi, LuaLua, McDermott, Donaldson, Sammy Ameobi.

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