The Magpies are just five points away from relegation, and while the North East outfit are not directly in danger of facing the drop, nerves may begin to creep in if they lose two on the bounce following their 3-0 defeat to Sunderland last weekend.
Newcastle will be relying on their travelling fans to behave at The Hawthorns following the unsavoury scenes that resulted in numerous arrests around St James' Park last Sunday.
For the Baggies, they have lost their last two league matches - against Arsenal and West Ham United - and this weekend's reverse fixture ended in a 2-1 defeat on away turf.
