Crystal Palace Vs West Bromwich Albion, Mon 26 Apr 2010

Next Story

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.
