Preview: Under 21s v Newcastle

25 February 2013

Palace welcome Newcastle United in the Barclays Under 21 Premier League looking for their first win after suffering a 3-2 defeat at second placed Reading last Monday.


The Eagles are likely to play a stronger line-up with no first team game this week with Aaron Wilbraham, Stuart O'Keefe and Jacob Butterfield likely to be included. For their part the Magpies have included young flier Shane Ferguson and the in-form Adam Campbell who has seven goals in nine starts at reserve level this season.


Peter Beardsley's young side bounced back from a 3-0 defeat to Reading with a 3-0 win against Stoke City last time out so should prove a good test for Gary Issott's first match in charge of the under 21s at Selhurst.


Tickets are £8 adults and £1 concessions for tonight's 7pm kick-off, or you can purchase in advance online here.
