The Baggies drew 2-2 with Ipswich Town at Portman Road on Saturday, having suffered a late equaliser to Omari Hutchinson. Tom Fellows had opened the scoring for WBA in the first-half and then retook the lead through John Swift after Nathan Broadhead had equalised for the Tractor Boys.
West Brom remain fifth in the Championship table after the draw but remain 11 points behind Ipswich and now there are teams who have made ground on them below them. Coventry City beat Millwall and are now just two points off whilst Sunderland defeated Plymouth Argyle and could overtake WBA if they do not get a positive result against Cardiff.
Cardiff suffered defeat at the weekend as they lost 2-0 at home to Preston North End. The Welsh side are without a home victory in two months and have lost six of their last eight matches in front of their home supporters. Cardiff can go as high as 11th with a win and cannot be overtaken by those below them.
The Asia Cup and the Africa Cup of Nations is now over and so West Brom should have their two stars back. Grady Diangana was representing DR Congo whilst Semi Ajayi reached the final with Nigeria but lost to the hosts Ivory Coast. Other clubs have thrown players straight back into the action after returning from international duty and given West Brom's small squad that just might have to be what Corberan does.
Former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey returned for Cardiff after a four-month lay-off at the weekend. He came on as a second-half substitute and could be pushing for a start. Here's the latest injury and team news including what Erol Bulut and Carlos Corberan said about Daryl Dike and Mark McGuinness at the weekend.
