Crystal Palace hope to welcome back strikers Calvin Andrew and Alan Lee for the visit of West Brom.

Andrew missed last Saturday's 1-1 draw at Derby as he was still feeling the effects of a clash of heads the week before which left QPR defender Damion Stewart with a fractured skull.

Lee has been struggling with a groin injury recently but was back in training this week.

The Eagles will be without left-back Lee Hills, who will miss the rest of this season and a large chunk of the next after suffering a cruciate injury at Pride Park.

Claude Davis will return at centre-half if he can shake off a knee injury which means Clint Hill could revert to full-back, otherwise Nathaniel Clyne is likely to deputise.

Palace can secure their survival and condemn Sheffield Wednesday to the drop with a victory over promoted Albion.

West Brom boss Roberto Di Matteo will check on goalkeeper Scott Carson.

Carson suffered an ankle injury in last weekend`s 2-0 home win against Middlesbrough and was replaced at half-time by Dean Kiely.

Kiely is on stand by to deputise while Di Matteo will again be without a trio of players still absent through injury.

Right-back Gianni Zuiverloon (thigh), winger Jerome Thomas (hamstring) and defender Gonzalo Jara (broken metatarsal) are all set to miss out again.

Striker Roman Bednar needs to undergo a hernia operation but will do so in the summer, meaning he should again be available.
