West Brom will look to claim another victory at The Hawthorns this evening as they host Wigan Athletic in the Championship. The Baggies are unbeaten on home soil since October, despite their poor form.

Carlos Corberan’s side have won only one of their last five matches but have most recently fallen to a 2-0 defeat against Hull City. West Brom now sit eleventh in the second tier but remain only seven points adrift from the play-off places with a game in hand.

Today’s clash with The Latics is a must-win for the Baggies, with the visitors currently six points from safety at the bottom of the Championship. Wigan have won only one of their last 15 matches in all competitions and haven’t won on the road since October.

Josh Griffiths is expected to remain in between the sticks for West Brom, with Alex Palmer remaining sidelined until after the international break. Kyle Bartley is also expected to return at a similar time after four months out, while another long-term absentee in Kean Bryan is out for the rest of the season with an ACL injury.

Matt Phillips and Karlan Grant (both quad) are nearing returns but tonight’s match will come too early for the pair. Meanwhile, Grady Diangana has suffered ligament damage to his foot and won’t be available for a number of weeks.

Jake Livermore and Tom Rogic could be fit to feature at The Hawthorns, while Brandon Thomas-Asante is likely to recover from a hamstring injury in time for the weekend’s clash with Huddersfield Town.

Wigan Athletic’s only major injury concern is Martin Kelly, who wouldn’t be able to feature against his parent club anyway. The defender joined The Latics on loan from West Brom in January but only made one appearance before suffering a serious knee problem that ruled him out for the rest of the campaign.

Josh Magennis made his comeback from the bench in Wigan’s 1-1 draw with Birmingham City at the weekend and could force his way into the starting line-up this evening. The forward has only managed one goal in the Championship this term, however it came in the reverse fixture in August.
