West Brom manager Tony Mowbray will be able to recall Paul Robinson for the visit of Burnley this weekend.
Robinson has just served a three match ban after his sending off in the game against Birmingham City in October.
In the three games that Robinson has been missing, the Baggies have picked up just one point from the nine available, the point coming from a 3-3 draw with Queens Park Rangers that should have been won.
Robinson has only been on the losing side four times in 17 games this season, one being a League Cup game at Arsenal and another being the game he was sent off in.
Robinson will be hoping to draw a line below the episode in which he received some bad press and get on with helping West Brom back to winning ways. The side have certainly missed him.
'We've missed his character,' Mowbray told the Birmingham Post.
'The character of the team is going to be there for all to see now — and one person who epitomises character, drive and a will to win is Paul. Any team would have missed that. People show passion in different ways.
'The way Paul shows his is through his determination to win every tackle, his drive on the ball and his running off it. The outward desire and determination that Paul shows is something the team will benefit from.
'Hopefully, he'll put behind him what has happened to him over the last few weeks. It's an incentive for him that we haven't gone on a winning streak without him.'
