Having steered Crystal Palace to safety last season, the hope is that Pulis will do the same at West Brom, who have slumped to 17th in the table, losing seven of their last 10 games.
Top scorer Saido Berahino will look to add to his tally of 13 goals this season, one of which came when the two sides met in the Capital One Cup back in September.
Steve Bruce shuffled his pack at the weekend as Hull lost in a repeat of last year’s FA Cup final against Arsenal, and will hope key players return fresher as the Tigers seek to build on an excellent win over Everton on New Year’s Day.
Hull themselves are by no means clear of danger, sitting just two points clear of the relegation zone, but a third away win of the season would give them breathing space and provide a real statement of intent.
