Peter Odemwingie is still likely to be missing through a knee injury, much to the annoyance of West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson. Shane Long suffered a leg injury in training but is expected to be fit.

Graham Dorrans turned his ankle at the end of the win against Bolton Wanderers and Paul Scharner has a grade one tear to the medial ligament in his left knee. Both players are battling to make the match.

Tottenham is still missing David Bentley, Michael Dawson and Tom Huddlestone, but has no other injury problems.
