Boaz Myhill will continue in goal for Albion as first choice Ben Foster looks set for further surgery on a troublesome groin problem.
Zoltan Gera is also struggling with a groin problem and will face a race to be fit for the game.
Defender Jonas Olsson will need a late fitness test having played every game so far this season and Steven Reid will be eased back into the team following a return from a hamstring injury.
Michael Owen and Andy Wilkinson could return for Stoke. Owen has had problems with his hamstring which has limited his playing time since joining the club. Wilkinson should recover from a back problem which kept him out of action midweek.
Peter Crouch won't feature after losing three teeth in a challenge with Coloccini in the midweek win against Newcastle.
Marc Wilson and Rory Delap remain long term absentees whilst Cameron Jerome will push for a start after scoring the winner against Newcastle.
Albion have been this season's surprise package in the Premier League; maintaining a place in the top four of the division recently.
They had won their previous four games on the bounce before meeting Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night. If the Baggies had triumphed over the Welsh side it would have been the first time they had won five in a row in England's top division in 34 years.
The impressive loan forward Romelu Lukaku will hope to continue the form that has seen talk of a return to parent club Chelsea whilst Shane Long and James Morrison hope to combine to cause Stoke problems.
Stoke have won three of their last four games ahead of the clash, which has seen the Potters rise to ninth in the table just six points behind West Brom.
They showed fantastic spirit to come from behind to beat Newcastle in midweek as Jonathan Walters and Cameron Jerome struck in the last 10 minutes to cancel out Papiss Cisse's opener.
Pulis will see the trip to the Hawthorns as the ideal time to face West Brom and come away with all three points to potentially move as high as sixth.
