Cardiff City full-back Andrew Taylor is back in contention after overcoming a calf injury, and he could replace Declan John.Striker Craig Bellamy faces a late fitness test on a knee injury.West Brom striker Victor Anichebe is a doubt because of illness, but fellow forward Nicolas Anelka may return after six weeks out with a groin problem.
Defender Jonas Olsson is available after serving a one-match suspension last weekend.
Poor runs by both clubs, added to surprise wins for Stoke and Norwich last week and the resurgence of Crystal Palace under Tony Pulis, mean Cardiff and West Bromwich Albion suddenly find themselves in the relegation picture.
To the neutral observer this comes as something of a surprise. We recall Cardiff's stunning victory over Manchester City and their equally impressive recovery to get a point at home to Manchester United.
West Brom went one better and won against United at Old Trafford for the first time since Gerald Sinstadt exclaimed 'what a goal!' to greet a stunner from Cyrille Regis in 1978.
Ardent followers of the Bluebirds and the Baggies recognise these moments as undisputed highlights which mask a more accurate story. The two clubs have gone five games without a win and Albion have lost their last three on the spin. Last Saturday's home defeat to terrible travellers Norwich was a particularly bitter pill to swallow.
After 50 years outside the top flight, this season was always going to be a challenge for Cardiff.
While upstairs interference periodically threatens to derail their bid to stay up, scoring goals remains their primary problem. Their last was that injury-time equaliser against Manchester United. Three games have been played since.
I wonder if Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay might choose to start again with Peter Odemwingie for this one. The Nigeria international once scored for West Brom against Cardiff in the FA Cup and fate might decide that his name is all over this fixture.
Albion fans will certainly fear that prospect but I doubt many regret his departure. Whilst the impact of Romelu Lukaku has certainly been missed, defensive shortcomings have been their chief concern, and having to score twice just to earn a point is making life tough for the Baggies.
Neither team can really afford to lose this one, but does a draw offer enough of a reward in the scramble to avoid being sucked in to the drop zone?

West Brom's last defeat away to Cardiff was a 3-1 top-flight loss on Boxing Day 1960. They are unbeaten in seven games away to the Bluebirds since then, with the last four ending in draws.
Cardiff striker Peter Odemwingie scored for West Brom to help eliminate his current employers from the FA Cup in a 4-2 win the last time the clubs met in the 2011-12 competition.

Cardiff City
Cardiff are without a win in five games since beating rivals Swansea in the south Wales derby.
Two of Cardiff's three wins have been at home.
Only Palace and West Ham have failed to score in as many games as Malky Mackay's side (eight) in the Premier League this season.

The Bluebirds have picked up just six points from seven games against bottom-half opposition.
Nine of the 22 league goals conceded by Cardiff have come in the last 15 minutes of games.
Ben Turner, Steven Caulker and Peter Whittingham have played every minute of all 15 Premier League games for Cardiff this season.

West Bromwich Albion
West Brom have won once in nine matches since September's 2-1 victory at Manchester United, losing their last three games.
Steve Clarke's side failed to score for the first time in six games in Saturday's 2-0 defeat by Norwich City.
Gareth McAuley is the only ever present for West Brom in 2013-14.
Twelve goals (six for, six against) have been scored in the last 15 minutes of matches involving West Brom.
