Olsson misses out for West Brom

West Brom centre-back Jonas Olsson is suspended for the away Barclays Premier League clash at Wigan tomorrow after his sending off against Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend.

Craig Dawson and Gabriel Tamas will be vying to partner Gareth McAuley at the heart of the Baggies defence. Right-back Billy Jones is also available again after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Striker Peter Odemwingie has only an outside chance of being fit because of a calf problem. Shane Long, Somen Tchoyi and Simon Cox are in contention to replace the Nigerian international.

Winger Jerome Thomas has shaken off his recent hamstring injury while midfielder Keith Andrews (knee) should be fit despite missing training during the early part of the week.

Provisional squad: Foster, Daniels, Jones, McAuley, Tamas, Dawson, Ridgewell, Shorey, Mulumbu, Brunt, Scharner, Andrews, Morrison, Dorrans, Thomas, Tchoyi, Cox, Fortune, Long, Odemwingie.
