Baggies can delay relegation with positive showing on Tyneside
Newcastle may lack motivation for meaningless fixture
Albion have played with freedom and enthusiasm since Darren Moore took over as caretaker-manager and have gone unbeaten for three games.
They deserved their 1-0 win at Manchester United and their 2-2 draw with Liverpool and are boosted by Daniel Sturridge's return to the squad.
Newcastle have done well to stave off the drop but their motivation appeared to be on the wane when they lost 1-0 at Everton on Monday.
Draw or West Brom double chance
1pt 30-29 188Bet
Christian Atsu (knee) is a doubt but Islam Slimani is fully fit and could make his first St James' Park start of the season.
Nacer Chadli is over a long-term hip problem and Daniel Sturridge could feature after he was ineligible to face Liverpool last weekend.
West Brom have scored in their last six matches.
