The Baggies haven't quite lived up to last season's showings, and are currently five points in arrears of Newcastle in 11th place. They've drawn the joint-most games in the Premier League, and are still looking to shake the frustrating inconsistency which saw them throw away a 2-0 lead to draw against local rivals Aston Villa on Monday.

Newcastle will be without Ryan Taylor through a long-term knee injury, while Steven Taylor and Paul Dummett are both doubtful. For West Brom, Zoltán Gera and Ben Foster are out, and could be joined on the sidelines by Billy Jones, Liam Ridgewell and Scott Sinclair.
