Norwich youngster Declan Rudd will deputise for suspended goalkeeper John Ruddy.

Centre-half Zak Whitbread (hamstring) is a doubt, but striker James Vaughan, a summer signing from Everton, could make his debut after recovering from a knee injury.

However, defenders Daniel Ayala and Elliot Ward (knee) remain out.

West Brom midfielder Zoltan Gera is in contention to make his first appearance since rejoining the club.

The Hungary international was suspended for the opening three games while also recovering from ankle surgery.

Albion are optimistic striker Peter Odemwingie will be available after his recent ankle setback but his strike partner Shane Long is rated only 50-50 to recover from a calf injury by Baggies head coach Roy Hodgson who is seeking a first league win of the campaign.

Norwich (from): Rudd, Tierney, de Laet, Barnett, Naughton, Pilkington, Crofts, Johnson, Hoolahan, Morison, Holt, Matthews, C Martin, Bennett, R Martin, D Fox, S Jackson, Whitbread, Vaughan.

West Brom (from): Foster, Fulop, Reid, Dawson, Tamas, Jara, Olsson, Shorey, Mattock, Scharner, Mulumbu, Thorne, Thomas, Morrison, Dorrans, Brunt, Gera, Odemwingie, Long, Tchoyi, Cox, Fortune.
