Baggies duo to return

West Brom will welcome back Kanu and Diomansy Kamara from African Nations Cup duty for the clash with Middlesbrough on Sunday.

The duo were allowed to spend time with their family rather than link up with the Baggies squad for the winter training break in Dubai.

Defender Paul Robinson will also be available after missing the 6-1 mauling at Fulham through suspension. Goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak is confident he will have recovered from a collarbone injury suffered in that game.

Team (from): Kuszczak, Kirkland, Albrechtsen, Watson, Davies, Clement, Martinez, Gaardsoe, Robinson, Carter, Greening, Wallwork, Quashie, Kamara, Inamoto, Campbell, Kanu, Ellington, Nicholson.
