The Midlands outfit has lost just one Premier League game under the stewardship of Steve Clarke and face a struggling QPR side rooted to the bottom of the top flight.

Mulumbu, Yacob
Fortune, Gera, Morrison

QPR

Cesar
Onuoha, Nelsen, M'Bia, Hill
Wright-Phillips, Faurlin, Granero, Park

West Brom is unlikely to have Billy Jones (knee) and Chris Brunt (hamstring) back in the side for QPR's visit to the Hawthorns.

Liam Ridgewell (calf), Steven Reid (hamstring) and Jerome Thomas (knee) have all also been ruled out of Saturday's clash, while Boaz Myhill (wrist) may be a substitute.

QPR defenders Anton Ferdinand and Jose Bosingwa (both hamstring) are set to undergo fitness tests before the game, but Fabio (hamstring) will miss out.

Armand Traore (ankle) also looks a doubt to start for Mark Hughes' side, while Andrew Johnson is still out with a long-term knee injury.

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • West Brom has lost just one Premier League game this season and has won all three of its home matches.
  • Steve Clarke's side has conceded just five league goals this term, a record bettered only by Sunderland and Chelsea.
  • Gaining 11 points from their opening six games has marked the Baggies' best-ever start to a Premier League campaign.
  • QPR has only won three times away to the Baggies in all 19 of their encounters at the Hawthorns.
  • The Rs have not won away from home in England's top flight since November, 2011, a streak that spans more than 16 games.
  • Shaun Wright-Phillips (pictured right) has produced 66 shots on target since joining QPR, but has so far failed to get himself on the scoresheet.
