Neil Danns is in line to return to the Crystal Palace starting XI for the visit of Ipswich.

The midfielder started on the bench during last weekend's defeat at Barnsley having missed the first two games of the season through suspension.

The Eagles have no new injury worries with winger Sean Scannell and defender Lee Hills (both knee) the only absentees.

Teenage midfielder Stuart O'Keefe could be on the bench after joining from League Two Southend on a free transfer earlier this week.

David Wright, Darren Ambrose, Alan Lee and Owen Garvan are all likely to feature against their former club, who were managed by Eagles boss George Burley for eight years.

Ipswich begin life without Jon Walters.

Former captain Walters was left out of the 1-1 draw with Burnley last weekend after his reaction to manager Roy Keane`s decision to strip him of the armband and has subsequently joined Stoke.

Defender Darren O`Dea could make his debut after joining on loan from Celtic while Tottenham winger Andros Townsend impressed on his bow last week and should keep his place.

Midfielder David Norris celebrated being named as new skipper by scoring his third goal in two games against the Clarets and he will continue to be partnered by teenager Luke Hyam. But Grant Leadbitter is a doubt after only lasting 45 minutes of that draw before coming off with an ankle injury.

Centre-half Gareth McAuley has recovered from a back injury but winger Carlos Edwards has a groin injury which will sideline him for several weeks. Mark Kennedy sustained a hamstring injury on his debut a fortnight ago and is not fit.

Former Tractor Boys David Wright and Owen Garvan should be in George Burley`s Palace side.
