Crystal Palace Team News:

Neil Warnock brought in three players this week on loan. Scott Sinclair, Kyel Ried and Nathan Aston, all could feature in the match with Sinclair from Chelsea being the pick of the bunch with his terrific pace from the wing.

Paul Ifill is a doubt with an ankle injury and former Blackpool loanee Neil Danns has a groin injury.

Player to watch: Clinton Morrison

The forward has been at the club since 1997, resigning after three years at Birmingham Morrison has knocked 14 goals in this season his last one a winner against Preston.

Simon Grayson brought two players in yesterday, Scott Flinders who has come form Palace on loan can`t play but Lee Martin a left back signed from Tottenham is allowed to play.

Paul Dickov is also set to return after missing three matches. He may replace Ben Burgess who despite scoring last week has been frustrating up front.

Another good performance at the weekend, he didn`t have to content with Fuller but he carried on his good form form the Preston match. He`ll be up against the physical presence of Morrison and James Scowcroft.
