Team News: Hennessey Gets First Start At Fulham

11 May 2014

Wayne Hennessey makes his first start in Crystal Palace colours against Fulham this afternoon.

The former Wolves goalkeeper joined the Eagles on transfer deadline day in January, but has been kept out of the side by a string of fine performances from Julian Speroni between the sticks.

But with Premier League survival secure  for another season, manager Tony Pulis will use this afternoon's London derby to give Wales international Hennessey his Palace debut.

Hennessey's inclusion is one of three changes to the team that memorable drew 3-3 with Liverpool last time out.

Two-goal super sub Dwight Gayle has earned himself a start in place of Kagisho Dikgacoi, while Thomas Ince is preferred to top scorer Jason Puncheon out wide.  

Fulham: Stockdale, Heitinga, Hangeland, Sidwell, Kacaniklic, Richardson, Rodallega, Zverotic, Woodrow, Parker, Amorebieta.

Fulham subs: Jorenen, Kasami, Mitroglou, Tunnicliffe, Dejagah, David, Williams.

Crystal Palace: Hennessey, Mariappa, Dann, Delaney, Ward, Bolasie, Jedinak, Ledley, Ince, Chamakh, Gayle. 

Crystal Palace subs: Speroni, Gabbidon, Dikgacoi, O'Keefe, Puncheon, Murray, Jerome.
