West Brom hope to have Allan Nyom available

Allan Nyom could be available for West Brom's FA Cup third-round tie against Derby after being left out of Cameroon's squad for the African Nations Cup.

The Baggies have not had official confirmation from the Cameroon Football Association he can play and must wait until they receive it.

Ben Foster is set to be rested and Boaz Myhill will be handed his first senior appearance in goal since August's EFL Cup defeat at Northampton.

Jonny Evans will not be risked as he continues to nurse a calf injury which forced him off in Monday's 3-1 win over Hull.

Derby could give midfielder Julien de Sart a debut at The Hawthorns after he joined on loan from Middlesbrough on Thursday.

But Jacob Butterfield starts his three-game ban after the Rams failed in an attempt to get his red card in the 3-0 defeat at Norwich overturned.

Midfielder Will Hughes remains suspended as he serves the second of his two-match ban having missed the Sky Bet Championship defeat at the Canaries.

Marcus Olsson (hamstring), Cyrus Christie (foot), Craig Forsyth (knee) and Max Lowe (groin) are all doubts.
