Charlie Daniels has been ruled out for the game with Philip Billing still a doubt.


Crystal Palace Form

Crystal Palace had won each of their last three games 1-0 before lockdown. This followed four consecutive draws and three consecutive defeats in what has been an inconstant season for the Eagles.

Their record against the bottom six is anything but inconsistent, however. Palace have seven wins and three draws from ten games, winning to nil on five occasions and conceding just four.

In their last ten games, only two have featured over 2.5 goals. This is reflected in the season tallies where Palace rank sixth-best for goals conceded and are only 18th for goals scored.
