Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock could name an unchanged side for the visit of Swansea.

The Eagles made it three wins out of three when a last-gasp Neil Danns goal secured a 2-1 victory at Scunthorpe on Saturday.

Danny Butterfield will probably continue as makeshift striker although Stern John, who recently returned from his loan spell at Ipswich, and Calvin Andrew provide other options for Warnock.

Austrian midfielder Jonny Ertl remains a doubt with a muscle injury and defender Paddy McCarthy is still recovering from the shoulder surgery he underwent last year.

Palace, who were deducted 10 points after going into administration just over a week ago, are four points above the relegation zone and yet just nine adrift of the play-offs.

Swansea chief Paulo Sousa could also name an unchanged side.

The Swans outclassed Preston in a 2-0 victory at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday to stretch their unbeaten run to seven Coca-Cola Championship matches.

Sousa has no new injuries or suspensions to contend with and full-back Angel Rangel (ankle) will come back into contention if he passes a fitness test.

Cedric van der Gun is nearing a return from the hamstring injury that has kept him out since the beginning of January, but the Dutch forward is unlikely to feature at Selhurst Park.

Striker Craig Beattie will definitely not be involved due to an ankle problem, while defender Albert Serran remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Recent signing Shefki Kuqi is expected to be on the bench in what will be his first return to Selhurst Park since he left the club in the summer.
