Bournemouth v West Brom preview

West Brom boss Roy Hodgson plans to hand some of his fringe players game time, with the likes of Graham Dorrans and Marek Cech likely to be given a run-out.
Hodgson must decide whether to include the fit-again Peter Odemwingie after the striker’s cameo in Saturday’s Premier League defeat at Chelsea, while Jerome Thomas (hip and thigh) remains a doubt, and Zoltan Gera (ankle) is still out.
Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury welcomes back Adam Barrett for the match.
The defender, who missed Saturday’s defeat to Carlisle, returns from a one-match ban following his red card against Stevenage.
Striker Steve Lovell made his comeback from a thigh injury against the Cumbrians and, despite playing 45 minutes, will be assessed before being named in the Cherries squad.
On-loan forward Ryan Doble has been given permission from parent club Southampton to feature in the competition but is doubtful with a thigh strain sustained at Brunton Park.
Midfielder Marc Pugh is likely to be sidelined for at least 10 days with a knee problem and Bradbury will be without fellow midfielder Steven Gregory for two weeks after he suffered a thigh injury.
Striker Michael Symes and midfielder Joe Partington remain sidelined with back and hip injuries respectively.
WBA (from): Foster, Fulop, Reid, Tamas, Olsson, Shorey, Scharner, Brunt, Mulumbu, Morrison, Odemwingie, Long, Cech, Tchoyl, Ibanez, Thorne, Thomas, Dorrans, Jara, McAuley, Fortune, Bednar.
