West Brom will be without captain Chris Brunt, striker Marc-Antoine Fortune and defender Goran Popov for Saturday's Premier League clash with Wigan.

Brunt missed the 3-0 win at Southampton with a knee injury and sits out again, while Popov has a calf problem.

Fortune starts a three-game suspension but Youssouf Mulumbu returns from a ban of his own and Peter Odemwingie is in contention for a first appearance since March 30.

Wigan are forced into a defensive change against West Brom with Maynor Figueroa ruled out for the rest of the season with a groin injury.

Paraguay centre-back Antolin Alcaraz (hamstring) is close to fitness but unlikely to return this weekend, meaning Ronnie Stam could come in at the back.

Midfielder Ben Watson, out since last November with a broken leg but on the bench last week, could figure while defender Roman Golobart and midfielder Fraser Fyvie are in contention after knocks.

Provisional squads

West Brom: Foster, Myhill, Jones, Reid, Ridgewell, McAuley, Olsson, Dawson. Thomas, Lukaku, Morrison, Dorrans, Rosenberg, Yacob, Long, Odemwingie, Tamas, Mulumbu.

Wigan: Robles, Al Habsi, Boyce, Stam, Scharner, Golobart, Caldwell, Beausejour, Gomez, McCarthy, Espinoza, McArthur, Maloney, McManaman, Kone, Di Santo, Henriquez, Fyvie.
