Peter Odemwingie: Available for selection after red card at Fulham
West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie is available again after serving a three-match ban but might not start at home to Queens Park Rangers.
Odemwingie was sent off at Fulham for aiming an impetuous kick at Sascha Riether.
In his absence, both Shane Long and Romelu Lukaku have impressed and Albion find themselves sixth in the Premier League table.
Baggies boss Steve Clarke welcomes the return of the Nigeria international but stresses that there is now competition for places among the forwards at the Hawthorns.
Clarke said: "Peter is available again. He is in the squad. He has trained well. But Peter has had to sit on the sidelines for the last three games through his own fault.
"If and when he gets the chance to make amends, he is more than welcome to do that. But everyone has got to battle for their place."
"He accepts that, he accepted that at the time, and we just welcome him back to the squad.
"If and when he gets the chance to make amends, he is more than welcome to do that.
"But everyone has got to battle for their place. It has been like that since the start of the season.
"We have sat here on a number of occasions and spoken about the competition for places, how it gives me a headache.
"Nothing has changed, it is the same situation now and it is one that we relish."
