Joe Mattock could return to the West Brom starting XI for their clash with Midlands rivals Coventry.

The left-back is set for a recall after Marek Cech suffered a groin problem during the closing stages of Saturday's 3-2 win over Preston at the Hawthorns.

Centre-back Jonas Olsson is a doubt with a calf injury which kept him out at the weekend while Steven Reid is sidelined with a groin injury which will keep him out for another week.

Jerome Thomas could start after returning to the bench on Saturday following a hamstring injury while fellow winger Andy Slory is also in contention.

Chile international Gonzalo Jara remains sidelined with the broken metatarsal that is likely to prevent him from playing again this season.

Chris Coleman will be without Michael McIndoe once again.

The winger suffered a back/hip muscle tear in a recent defeat to Cardiff and is set to remain on the sidelines.

Sammy Clingan will resume in midfield after returning from a calf problem to face Leicester on Sunday.

Manager Chris Coleman has no new injury or suspension concerns for the clash, with defenders Ben Turner, Issac Osbourne and Jordan Clarke out for the long-term.

Aron Gunnarsson could return to the starting line-up after replacing David Bell during the second half of Sunday's draw, while Coleman may make a number of other changes after expressing his disappointment at seeing his side concede two early goals at the weekend.
