West Brom have fitness doubts over midfielders Morgan Amalfitano and Scott Sinclair.Amalfitano was substituted with a knee injury last weekend, while Sinclair has missed the last three matches because of a hamstring complaint. Crystal Palace defender Jonny Parr could make his first appearance since injuring ankle ligaments in April. Damien Delaney is having to manage an ongoing ankle problem but is expected to be available.
I remember commentating on both legs of Crystal Palace's Championship play-off semi-final last May. Ian Holloway's team had somewhat stumbled over the line at the end of the regular league season, winning just one of their last 10 Championship games.
The squad was clearly not the finished article, despite having Wilfried Zaha and Glenn Murray in the team - Zaha was widely regarded the best player in the Championship last year, while Murray had bagged 31 goals over the course of the campaign.
Fast forward to the start of this season; Zaha had joined Manchester United, Murray was out with a long-term knee injury and the club was adopting a scattergun approach in the transfer market. Quantity rather than quality arrived at Selhurst Park. It is against this backdrop that Holloway's tenure failed to last any longer than eight games in the top flight.
There may be 29 league fixtures left and a total of 87 points to play for, but it is already evident that whoever becomes the new manager is going to need a miraculous turnaround to avoid the drop. Attracting quality players to an already bloated squad in January will be almost impossible.
So is this a good or a bad time to play West Brom? Albion's 4-1 defeat by Liverpool last time out was their heaviest of the season so far. However, it was also their only league defeat in the past two months.
Head coach Steve Clarke has engineered an away win at Old Trafford and earned creditable draws against sides such as Everton and Arsenal in the league.
At the time of writing, Keith Millen looks likely to be still in caretaker charge of the visitors for this one. He admits he is not the man to take the club forward.
Should Palace slump to another defeat at The Hawthorns, whoever does take this job might already be mentally preparing for Championship football next season.

Three of the last four league meetings have ended as 1-1 draws. Crystal Palace are unbeaten in five games against West Brom.
Palace's only top-flight win in seven attempts at The Hawthorns was by 4-0 in February 1973.

West Bromwich Albion
West Brom lost for the first time in six matches at Anfield last weekend (W2, D3, L1).
However, they are four points and four places worse off than at the same stage last season.
The Baggies have only won one of their last eight league games at The Hawthorns (W1, D3, L4).
Nicolas Anelka has mustered just two shots on target in seven league appearances for Albion.

Crystal Palace
Palace have lost six consecutive league matches for the first time since February and March 2001, when they were in the second tier.
It's their worst top-flight run since a club record eight-match losing streak between January and March 1998.
They are yet to earn an away point this season and are winless in their last nine league trips dating back to March (D2, L7).
The Eagles have conceded a league-high four penalties this season.
Two thirds of Crystal Palace's six goals this season have come from set-pieces. Their tally of two goals from open play is the lowest in the division.
Marouane Chamakh has appeared in all nine of Palace's league games this season but has had only two shots on target. He has scored once in his last 20 Premier League
