West Bromwich Albion will be looking for a win against Norwich City at the Hawthorns on Saturday to drag them further away from a potential relegation battle.

However, Roy Hodgson's side come up against a Norwich team who are occupying the dizzying heights of ninth in the Premier League table after a steady, yet impressive, gathering of points on their return to English football's top flight.

Simon Cox is expected to start for the Baggies following his FA Cup hattrick against Cardiff City on Saturday, but Shane Long could miss out with a back injury.

Defenders Ritchie De Laet and Elliott Ward are both sidelined for the Canaries, while Marc Tierney and James Vaughan are also likely to be left out for the trip to the Midlands.

Current form:

West Brom: LWWDLL
Norwich: WDDLDW

Possible lineups:

West Brom: Foster; Jara, Shorey, McAuley, Dawson; Jones,
Morrison, Dorrans, Tamas; Odemwingie, Cox

Norwich: Rudd; R Martin, Drury, Whitbread, Ayala; Crofts,
Surman, Hoolahan, Fox; Holt, Jackson

Sports Mole says: 1-2
