Alan Pardew's men drew to Sunderland despite being a man down for most of the match in the North-East derby and a win over Clug Brugge in the Europa League will boost their confidence.
Newcastle are set to retain their top stars after opting for young players in Europe during the mid-week fixture. Cheick Tiote is suspended following his red card against the Black Cats. However, Pardew must decide whether to recall Papiss Demba Cisse after dropping the striker against Sunderland.
West Brom, on the other hand, hope skipper Chris Brunt and right-back Billy Jones are fit enough to start after resuming training.
*West Brom have scored 11 goals in their last four visits to Newcastle.
Newcastle United (4-4-2): Krul-Simpson, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon-Ben Arfa, Cabaye, Anita, Gutierrez-Cisse, Ba.
West Brom Albion (4-2-3-1): Foster-Tamas, McAuley, Olsson, Ridwewell-Mulumbu, Yavob-Fortune-Long.
