Palace v Hull: The Programme

28 January 2014

The countdown is on to tonight's Barclays Premier League six-pointer against Hull City, which marks the first ever top tier meeting between the two clubs - so why not mark the occasion by picking up a copy of the Palace Programme?

Former Tigers defender and tonight's cover star Damien Delaney shrugs off a host of good omens that are stacking up in favour of Palace ahead of tonight's game, as he concentrates solely on getting results on the pitch. The former Tigers defender talks in detail about his time on Humberside and how he is relishing coming up against Hull's new front line of Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic.

We also talk to Jason Pucheon, who has experienced a rollercoaster start to 2014 - scoring a New Year's Day equaliser against Norwich City and missing a penalty against Tottenham Hotspur, before bouncing back to score the winning goal against Stoke City in our last outing at Selhurst Park 10 days ago.  

Our Action Replay this week takes us back to the Eagles 2-0 victory over Hull back in September 2005, when goals from Clinton Morrison and Andrew Johnson were enough to give Palace all three points.

Another former Tiger, Stephen Hunt, is the subject of our 'Where Are The Now?' series this week, while we also take a look back at five other players to wear the colours of both Palace and Hull City in our regular 'Foot In Both Camps' feature.

Mark Bright's hard-hitting column returns with a must-read piece on the use of Twitter in football, following the abuse received by his former Palace teammate, Stan Collymore. 

Meanwhile, Aaron Wilbraham, who scored in the FA Cup fourth round defeat to Wigan Athletic at the weekend, talks us through his Footballing Firsts and Stuart O'Keefe picks his Dream XI.

With our regular columns from Tony Pulis, Mile Jedinak, Stephen Browett and Kevin Day to also look forward to, plus our usual 11-page look at today's visitors, there are plenty of reasons to pick up the latest edition of the Palace Programme. 

Our award-winning 80-page matchday publication is available to purchase from sellers around the ground for just £3.50 - and is the perfect way to whet your appetite for tonight's game under the Selhurst Park floodlights.
