Chris Brunt remains sidelined for Saturday's match at The Hawthorns but will return to action in Monday night's Premier League 2 fixture with Aston Villa, as West Bromwich Albion approach a fully-fit squad. 

West Ham United captain Mark Noble is available for selection after having eight stitches in his hand but Aaron Cresswell, Andre Ayew, Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho remain out. 

Summer signing Alvaro Arbeloa continues to build up his fitness and is expected to be available from next week.
