WEST BROM v Reading: Lukaku in line to replace suspended Odemwingie

Ready to start: Romelu Lukaku started on the bench in the 3-0 defeat at Fulham

West Brom will be without suspended striker Peter Odemwingie for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash with Reading.

The Nigeria international serves the first game of a three-match ban for kicking Sascha Riether in last week's 3-0 defeat at Fulham, opening the door for the likes of Markus Rosenberg, Romelu Lukaku and Marc-Antoine Fortune to seize their chance up front.

Baggies boss Steve Clarke hopes to have full-back Steven Reid available after a hamstring injury but defender Goran Popov is set to miss out with a groin problem.

Provisional squad: Foster, Myhill, Reid, Olsson, McAuley, Ridgewell, Jara, Tamas, Dawson, Jones, Dorrans, Yacob, Mulumbu, Morrison, Brunt, Gera, El Ghanassy, Fortune, Long, Rosenberg, Lukaku.
