West Bromwich Albion will be without Youssouf Mulumbu after the midfielder picked up a minor hamstring strain during last Saturday's match against West Ham.

Head coach Roy Hodgson has no other injury concerns ahead of the match, however.

Full-back Ronald Zubar is Wolves' only fresh injury doubt.

Zubar suffered a swollen ankle during Wolves' 2-0 defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last weekend - a result which pushed them to the bottom of the table.

If Zubar is ruled out, then Kevin Foley is the obvious candidate to replace him.

Stephen Hunt is unlikely to have recovered from the calf injury which saw him miss the defeat against the Gunners.

But fellow midfielder Dave Edwards could be back in contention after recovering from a groin problem.

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

Wolves (from): Hennessey, Hahnemann, Zubar, Foley, Stearman, Berra, Elokobi, Hammill, Henry, Milijas, Jarvis, O'Hara, Doyle, Ebanks-Blake, Fletcher, Craddock, Ward, Jones, Edwards.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

...is that the draw for the next round is pretty shocking. Blackburn v Stoke, anybody? We also have mails on LVG and ManUnited, who drew plenty under Fergie...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
