Ben Foster remains a doubt through injury and may not be rushed back to action following the capable displays of Boaz Myhill in his absence.
Gareth McAuley missed the 2-1 win over Chelsea with a hamstring injury but should be back in contention to replace Tamas at the back.
Romelu Lukaku is back available after sitting out against his parent club but is unlikely to replace Shane Long, who starred in the win last weekend.
West Brom are unbeaten in their last 5 matches against Sunderland, winning 4 and drawing the other 2-2 in this fixture last season at the Stadium of Light.
O'Neill's side have only lost 2 of their 7 home games this season and finally found their feet in front of goal last weekend to score more than once in a game for only the second time thus far.
The hosts will find it harder to do so against a West Brom side that have conceded just 13 goals in 12 games, though Sunderland have also been resolute at the back and this game, if at all, may be separated by a single goal.
