Paolo Di Canio: Happy to have two key players available again for West Brom matc

Club captain John O'Shea has served a one-match ban while recent arrival Emanuele Giaccherini is back after missing the home game with Arsenal through injury.

O'Shea's suspension allowed him to shake off the injury he picked up playing for the Republic of Ireland in the recent World Cup qualifier against Austria.

"There is no doubt that they will be in the game."
