Crystal Palace are still without Dean Moxey, Nathaniel Clyne and Steffen Iversen for the visit of Burnley.
Moxey remains suspended after a red card at the end of last season - he still has two matches to serve after Tuesday's Carling Cup clash with Crawley was postponed.
Fellow full-back Clyne is still sidelined with a foot injury so Peter Ramage, Ryan McGivern and Andrew Davies are set to continue in defence after making their debuts in the opening-day defeat at Peterborough.
Veteran striker Iversen is around a fortnight from a return with a hamstring injury.
Australian midfielder Mile Jedinak is unlikely to be involved as he is short of fitness and defender Lee Hills remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury.
Burnley boss Eddie Howe is boosted by the return of winger Keith Treacy and striker Alex MacDonald.
Both players missed the Clarets' 6-3 extra-time win over Burton in the Carling Cup first round on Tuesday night.
Treacy, a summer signing from Preston, won his sixth full cap as a substitute in the Republic of Ireland's 0-0 friendly draw against Croatia in Dublin on Wednesday night.
And MacDonald won his third Scotland Under-21 cap after coming off the bench in the 3-0 win over Norway.
Both men will be available at Selhurst Park but striker Martin Paterson remains sidelined with a troublesome thigh injury and defender Danny Fox has joined Southampton.
Paterson missed much of last season with the injury and a scan this week revealed a tear in his thigh muscle that will require a further spell on the sidelines.
