Andrea Orlandi and Will Buckley have been ruled out of Albion’s FA Cup fifth round replay at Hull tonight.
Orlandi sustained a swollen ankle in Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat by Wigan.
Buckley, who came on for the last half-hour, is concerned about not playing too much too quickly on his latest comeback from hamstring trouble.
Jake Forster-Caskey, left out of the squad against Wigan, is likely to take Orlandi’s, central midfield role, with Keith Andrews stepping in for the Cup-tied Dale Stephens.
Solly March, who missed the Wigan setback with a slight hamstring injury, and Leo Ulloa are in the squad which flew to Humberside last night, although neither of them are regarded as fit enough to play 90 minutes.
They will be assessed today to evaluate the extent of their participation, with a quarter-final place at stake for the winners at home to Gus Poyet’s Sunderland.
