West Brom striker Nicolas Anelka is available again for Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with Swansea at The Hawthorns after missing the last two games while on compassionate leave.

Anelka's return is timely as head coach Steve Clarke is without Matej Vydra, who sustained a hamstring injury in the 3-0 Capital One Cup win over Newport on Tuesday.

With goalkeeper Ben Foster out for 12 weeks with a stress fracture of a bone in his right foot, Boaz Myhill should start despite a wrist injury. Midfielders Zoltan Gera, George Thorne (both knee) and Steven Reid (knock) remain sidelined.

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup will hope to restore Ashley Williams, Wilfried Bony and Jonjo Shelvey to his side for Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash at West Brom.

The trio missed the Europa League meeting with Petrolul Ploiesti due to minor injuries, with Laudrup opting not to risk them for the trip to Romania.

Nathan Dyer and Neil Taylor will again be absent with hamstring and thigh injuries respectively, but Dwight Tiendalli could come into contention after rejoining the club on Thursday.

Provisional squads:

West Brom: Myhill, Daniels, Olsson, Popov, Ridgewell, Lugano, McAuley, Dawson, Jones, Tamas, Yacob, Morrison, Brunt, Dorrans, Long, Mulumbu, Rosenberg, Berahino, Anelka, Sinclair.

Swansea: Vorm, Amat, Flores, Williams, Britton, Shelvey, Michu, Bony, Hernandez, Lamah, Routledge, Monk, Ki, De Guzman, Canas, Rangel, Pozuelo, Tremmel, Richards, Davies, Donnelly, Tiendalli.
