Malky Mackay's Cardiff are also struggling to win at the moment and are currently a point behind the Baggies in 16th, only one better off than 18th-placed Fulham.
However, the Bluebirds do have decent form at home, having won two and drawn two of their seven league fixtures so far, while West Brom have registered just one victory on the road all season.
West Brom are still without the injured duo Nicolas Anelka and Ben Foster, although Jonas Olsson will return from suspension and Scott Sinclair has recovered from a torn hamstring after spending almost two months on the sidelines.
West Brom: WDDLLL
Possible starting lineups
Cardiff: Marshall; Theophile-Catherine, Caulker, Turner, Taylor; Cowie, Medel, Mutch, Whittingham, Kim; Bellamy
West Brom: Myhill; Jones, Olsson, Lugano, Ridgewell; Yacob, Mulumbu; Amalfitano, Sessegnon, Sinclair; Anichebe
Sports Mole says: 2-0
