Roberto Di Matteo has no fresh injury problems to contend with as he looks to continue West Brom's recent upturn in fortunes and keep on the tails of leaders Newcastle.

Albion's array of internationals have all returned from their respective duties injury free - including Chris Wood and Robert Koren who this week helped New Zealand and Slovenia respectively qualify for next summer's World Cup in South Africa.

That just leaves long-term trio James Morrison (heel), Ishmael Miller and Neil Clement (both knee) as Di Matteo's only absentees.

The Baggies boss is unlikely to tinker with his starting XI much, if at all, after seeing his side follow up a 5-0 win over Watford with a 2-1 triumph at Leicester prior to the international break - results which have stabilised a unsteady period in which the club won just one of six league games.

Bristol City will once again be without Bradley Orr.

The full-back has suffered a recurrence of an Achilles injury which he initially sustained in the victory at Barnsley last month, so Cole Skuse will continue to fill in at right-back.

Fellow defender Jamie McAllister had to come off in the draw at Nottingham Forest a fortnight ago due to a groin injury, but the Scotsman is fit to face Albion.

Midfielder Ivan Sproule is back in contention following a two-week leave of absence after he and his wife's second child was stillborn last month.

Brian Wilson remains on the sidelines due to a shin injury as the Robins look to extend a seven-match unbeaten run.
