Sam Allardyce had to dip into the loan window, bringing in Mladen Petric until the end of the season due to Andy Carroll suffering another injury setback.

Both teams will be aiming to get back to winning ways as they look to come back from losses against Stoke and Norwich, respectively, previous to the international break.
