West Brom are hopeful left-back Marek Cech will have recovered from a shin injury in time for tomorrow's FA Cup third-round tie at Reading.
Cech has had a scan on the affected area and it has revealed no serious damage.
Right-back Steven Reid will definitely be unavailable after undergoing
a knee operation yesterday while the Baggies will also monitor the fitness of leading scorer Peter Odemwingie who is struggling with a swollen ankle.
Gabriel Tamas will serve the final game of a three-match suspension but fellow defender Paul Scharner has recovered from illness.
Team (from): Myhill, Carson, Hurst, Zuiverloon, Jara, Cech, Mulumbu, Dorrans, Morrison, Brunt, Thomas, Odemwingie, Shorey, Fortune, Cox, Meite, Miller, Tchoyi, Olsson, Scharner.
