Albion have central midfield concerns for Reading’s visit on Saturday.
Rohan Ince has still not returned to training after missing the 1-0 win at Millwall with an ankle injury sustained in the FA Cup at Hull eight days ago.
Andrea Orlandi is also under treatment for a thigh injury.
Keith Andrews will make his first home start in the Championship for eight weeks if Ince fails to recover and Jake Forster-Caskey is on standby to replace Orlandi.
Will Buckley is in full training. The winger has suffered no reaction to his hamstring problems after his appearance at Millwall as a second half substitute.
