West Brom central defender Gabriel Tamas is available for Saturday's Premier League clash with Sunderland at the Stadium Of Light after completing a three-game suspension.

But he faces a battle to regain his place following an impressive performance by summer signing Gareth McAuley in last weekend's goalless home draw with Fulham.

Defender Craig Dawson is expected to recover from the illness which meant he was unable to train on Thursday, but midfielder Zoltan Gera and striker Marc-Antoine Fortune are still sidelined through injury.

Sunderland defender Titus Bramble will miss out after being suspended by the club.

The 30-year-old will not train or play with his team-mates until an investigation into allegations of sexual assault and possession of a Class A drug has been completed.

Midfielder Sebastian Larsson has been playing after having pain-killing injections in a broken toe and his condition will be assessed, while striker Connor Wickham (groin) is a doubt and Craig Gordon and Fraizer Campbell (both knee) continue to work their way back to fitness.

Teams

Sunderland (from): Mignolet, Westwood, Brown, O'Shea, Richardson, Turner, Laing, Cattermole, Gardner, Vaughan, Larsson, Colback, Elmohamady, Bendtner, Sessegnon, Wickham, Ji, McClean, Cook.

West Brom (from): Foster, Reid, Tamas, Dawson, Olsson, McAuley, Shorey, Brunt, Dorrans, Mulumbu, Thomas, Long, Odemwingie, Morrison, Fulop, Jones, Cox, Scharner, Tchoyi.
