The fact that these two teams are neck and neck with almost half of the season gone is indicative of how Coventry have overachieved and Albion have underachieved.
The Sky Blues are surprise playoff contenders after a 16th-placed finish last season, but showed they can match the best in the division with a 2-2 draw against Bournemouth a week ago.
Matt Godden scored in the 85th minute and then Todd Kane equalised in the 95th minute as Mark Robins‘s side mounted a sensational late comeback from two goals down on the South coast.
It was a third successive draw for Coventry, who have lost just one of their last seven matches.
No team in the Championship have picked up more points at home this season than the Sky Blues (23), who have only been beaten twice at home in the league since March.
Coventry will hope to have Michael Rose and Gustavo Hamer back available after the pair missed the draw against Bournemouth through illness and injury respectively.
Jake Clarke-Salter and Martyn Waghorn are expected to return from the sidelines soon, but Saturday’s game might be too early for them.
Sky Blues top scorer Viktor Gyokeres is in line for a recall after starting on the bench at the Vitality Stadium.
Jayson Molumby‘s red card against Nottingham Forest leaves West Brom short of midfield options, with Jake Livermore also suspended.
Valerien Ismael is likely to be forced to play someone out of position, with Semi Ajayi, Matt Phillips and Adam Reach the contenders to partner Alex Mowatt in the middle of the park.
Injured defender Dara O’Shea has returned to training on the grass this week and will hopefully be available again early in the new year.
