West Brom play their second home game in four days as they host early season Championship strugglers QPR at The Hawthorn’s on Tuesday night.

The Baggies played to a goalless draw against Plymouth Argyle in their first game back after the international break. Carlos Corberan’s men got 14 shots away but only two landed on the Pilgrims goal and that left West Brom in ninth. QPR are up next, and they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town on the weekend. The Hoops fell two goals behind inside 14-minutes and despite Jake Clarke-Salter’s goal three minutes from half-time, they could not find a way back into the game.

Gareth Ainsworth’s side are really struggling as they sit 22nd in the league standings. The men from West London haven’t won since September 2, and pressure is mounting on their manager. The lowly outfit are a team to be wary of however and their two league wins this season have come on their travels against Cardiff City and Middlesbrough respectively.

Carlos Corberan said about Sarimento the Express & Star: “No, he won’t be in the team. The only option is that we recover him for the last two games before the international break – maybe. “For the first three games, no. If he arrives well, he could help the team in the last two.” (Photo: Getty Images)

West Brom are undefeated in their last three home matches, beating bottom-of-the-table Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 in between two goalless draws with Millwall and Plymouth Argyle. The 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield on September 2 is the only time they’ve tasted defeat at home in the league this season, and so there’s expectation of maximum points this time around. A win on Tuesday could see them move up to fifth given Southampton and Birmingham City don’t play until Wednesday.

Both managers have some injury concerns to think about and so without a further ado, here’s the latest injury and team news ahead of the EFL Championship clash between West Brom and QPR at The Hawthorn’s:
