Midfielder Yoann Folly is Plymouth's sole injury doubt as they prepare to welcome second-placed West Brom to Home Park.

Folly was ruled out of last Saturday's 2-1 league defeat at Sheffield Wednesday with a knee injury and it remains to be seen whether the Frenchman will recover in time for this weekend's game.

Argyle head coach Paul Mariner is boosted by the availability of new signings Damien Johnson and Kenny Cooper.

Johnson has joined the club on a free transfer from Premier League Birmingham, while Cooper has completed a loan move from 1860 Munich and will remain with Argyle until the end of the season.

Both men are expected to go straight into Mariner's starting XI as Plymouth look to gain revenge for a 3-1 defeat at The Hawthorns on September 12.

West Brom have concerns over Marek Cech and Ishmael Miller.

Left-back Cech finished Wednesday night`s 3-2 victory at Blackpool with a hamstring problem while substitute striker Miller injured his ankle in the challenge that won Albion`s matchwinning penalty late on.

Fortunately, the injury sustained by fit-again Miller has nothing to do with the knee problems which forced him out of the game for 13 months.

Key players Chris Brunt, Roman Bednar and Jerome Thomas were all substituted prior to the 75th minute at Bloomfield Road with head coach Roberto Di Matteo maintaining one eye on the trip to Home Park.

The Baggies stayed in Lancashire following Wednesday`s fine win - a result which extended their unbeaten run to five games - and will fly straight to Devon on Friday to avoid lengthy coach travel on the motorway.

Deadline-day signing Andy Slory will again look to make an impact from the bench as he did against the Seasiders.
