Di Matteo made 11 alterations to his line-up for the 2-0 away triumph over Leyton Orient in the previous round.

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