Crystal Palace welcome back defenders Clint Hill and Lee Hills for the visit of Preston.

Hill has served a two-match ban for picking up 10 yellow cards and is available again.

Hills missed Saturday's 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough after being sent off in the closing stages at Watford last week, but the youngster is also back in contention for Monday's game.

Captain Shaun Derry came through the full 90 minutes at the Riverside and looks to have shrugged off a hip injury.

Nathaniel Clyne is still out with a hip problem of his own and fellow right-back Danny Butterfield has a hamstring injury as Paul Hart looks for a win which could see Palace climb out of the bottom three.

Preston boss Darren Ferguson looks set to be without midfielder Chris Sedgwick.

The 29-year-old limped out of Saturday`s 1-1 draw against Watford with a knee injury so Keith Treacy could deputise, while Paul Parry (tendonitis) and Barry Nicholson (broken leg) are still on the sidelines.

Prior to Saturday`s game, Ferguson warned his players they are not safe from relegation yet and he will be hoping they can take a step towards ensuring their Coca-Cola Championship status remains at Selhurst Park.

Palace, who have won just one of their last eight games, are currently occupying the league`s final relegation place but are just one point adrift of safety with a game in-hand over Watford.
