Steve Clarke: Hoping to see West Brom book their place in round four
West Brom and Queens Park Rangers meet for the third time in as many weeks in an FA Cup third round replay.
The two Premier League rivals have seen plenty of each other of late, with a league clash on Boxing Day followed by a cup date in the New Year.
A 1-1 draw at Loftus Road means they must try again at The Hawthorns, with a home date against either Sheffield Wednesday or MK Dons awaiting the victor.
The Baggies prevailed 3-2 the last time QPR travelled to the Midlands back in October, so will be hoping for more joy on Tuesday.
The Premier League remains the priority for both Steve Clarke and Harry Redknapp, but both would welcome an extended run in the cup and a welcome morale boost.
West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie and right-back Steven Reid will return from injury for midweek cup duty.
Odemwingie - a target for QPR - has recovered from a calf problem while Reid is available after a shin complaint.
Midfielder Claudio Yacob (hamstring) and strikers Shane Long (dead leg) and Marc-Antoine Fortune (hamstring) are only expected to be fit for the weekend Premier League clash with Aston Villa.
QPR boss Redknapp has no fresh injury concerns to contend with.
Redknapp could make a number of changes after his side's hard-fought 0-0 draw with Tottenham on Saturday, but is still without Junior Hoilett (hamstring) and Samba Diakite, who is at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Defender Ryan Nelsen remains available but forwards Andrew Johnson (knee) and Bobby Zamora (hip) are both absent.
