George Burley will be without the experience of Edgar Davids for the first time when Crystal Palace host Watford.
The 37-year-old former Barcelona and Inter Milan midfielder left the club by mutual consent on Monday.
Sean Scannell and Lee Hills remain sidelined with knee injuries and on-loan defender Anthony Gardner remains a doubt due to the groin problem that has kept him out of the last two games.
Claude Davis has served his four-match ban for being sent-off in the 1-0 defeat at Millwall and could go straight back into the starting line-up following three successive defeats.
Teenager Wilfried Zaha will be pushing for a starting berth after signing a new four-and-a-half year contract with the club this week but Burley is likely to continue with Pablo Counago and James Vaughan up front.
Watford manager Malky Mackay has no fresh injury worries.
Mackay saw his side held to a 1-1 draw by Nottingham Forest on Saturday and may make changes as he looks for a first win in four.
Young winger Michael Bryan is set to be rested with another teenager - Matthew Whichelow - given a chance to impress while Marvin Sordell could be recalled.
Sordell was on the bench against Forest but has scored seven times this season and could start in place of Troy Deeney.
Full-back Lee Hodson has recovered from a back injury and was among the substitutes at the weekend but Scottish winger Don Cowie is still unavailable due to a knee injury.
