Kagisho Dikgacoi returns to Palace's starting line-up today in Tony Pulis' only change to the side that beat Everton 3-2 on Wednesday night.
The South African is back to partner Mile Jedinak in the centre of midfield, replacing the injured Marouane Chamakh in the Eagles XI.
That means Cameron Jerome will operate in the lone striking role, with Joe Ledley expected to play in the hole just behind the on-loan Stoke frontman.
