West Brom midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu will return from suspension for the Barclays Premier League derby at Aston Villa tomorrow.

Striker Peter Odemwingie is battling to be fit - the six-goal leading scorer suffered a groin injury during the defeat of Newcastle and has been unable to train this week.

Midfielder Chris Brunt's ongoing groin problem means his training continues to be restricted, although he is hopeful of being fit.

Provisional squad: Carson, Jara, Scharner, Tamas, Cech, Tchoyi, Brunt, Morrison, Dorrans, Thomas, Odemwingie, Mulumbu, Myhill, Ibanez, Barnes, Reid, Shorey, Fortune, Cox.
