Adam Reach (quad) is expected to return to action in the New Year after undergoing surgery. He suffered the injury during pre-season as he tried to make a return to action.

United States forward Daryl Dike (achilles) is also out for a considerable period after sustaining his injury against Stoke City in February, he is making a step up in his recovery however and could turn out for West Brom before the year is out.

Martin Kelly is another absentee and his future at the club looks uncertain given Darnell Furlong is ahead of him in the pecking order whilst Pipa was signed earlier this month.

Out: Adam Reach, Daryl Dike, Josh Maja and Martin Kelly.
