In his first managerial job in over eight years, Paul Ince has steered Reading to Championship survival with 15 points from 12 matches.
The Royals lost 3-0 away at Hull City last weekend but still secured safety because Peterborough United were beaten by Nottingham Forest.
Defeat at the MKM Stadium was only a second loss in eight games for Reading, who have steadily picked up points under Ince – including three wins from six at home – to get themselves over the line.
Still only caretaker manager, Ince has remained coy on his long-term future in Berkshire and says that nothing will be addressed until after the final game of the season against Luton Town.
If he does stay beyond this summer, one of his first priorities must be sorting out Reading’s leaky defence – they have conceded the most goals in the Championship this season (85).
Only four teams in the Championship have picked up fewer points away from home this season than the Baggies (20), who have lost eight of their last 10 league games on the road.
However, they are unbeaten in their last five matches against Reading and won 1-0 in this season’s reverse fixture at The Hawthorns courtesy of Callum Robinson’s second-half goal.
Preview: Reading vs. West Brom – prediction, team news, lineups
Paul Ince has confirmed that Reading pair Tom Holmes and Femi Azeez will miss the rest of the season through illness and injury respectively.
Tom Ince suffered an ankle injury against Hull last weekend so will also be absent for the Royals, who already have John Swift, Scott Dann and Andy Rinomhota on the sidelines.
Alen Halilovic has returned to the matchday squad in recent weeks and could be handed an opportunity, while Dejan Tetek is back in training so could also feature.
Darnell Furlong is available again for West Brom after being suspended for their draw against Coventry last weekend.
Alex Mowatt has undergone groin surgery and is therefore sidelined for the final matches of the campaign.
