The Hoops played out a goalless draw against Tottenham at Loftus Road on Saturday, which came on the back of a shock 1-0 win at Chelsea on January 2.

Prior to their victory at Stamford Bridge, QPR forced the cup replay with the Baggies courtesy of Kieran Dyer's injury-time leveller in west London.

Hoops boss Harry Redknapp has no new injury concerns for the trip to the Hawthorns, although he could make a several changes after the weekend's stalemate at his former club.

However, the R's are still without Junior Hoilett (hamstring) and Samba Diakite, who is at the African Nations Cup with Mali.

Veteran defender Ryan Nelsen is in contention, but forwards Andrew Johnson (knee) and Bobby Zamora (hip) are both unavailable.

Meanwhile, Albion will look to brush aside their 3-2 defeat at Reading and recapture the form which helped them to a surprise third-place standing towards the close of last year.

Steve Clarke's side have now lost six of their last nine matches in the top-flight, winning just two in that stretch.

Midfielder Zoltan Gera remains out for the rest of the season having ruptured his anterior cruciate ligaments in the Baggies' last meeting with QPR.

West Brom will also be without midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu, who is on Africa Cup of Nations duty with the Democratic Republic of Congo. Otherwise, Clarke has no new injury concerns.
