ABOUT
Palace aim to bounce back from last weekend's home defeat to West Bromwich Albion by hosting a Hull City side who have picked up just two points in their last six games.

The Tigers' win against the Eagles in October snapped a run of eight successive games without success against Palace, but they have won just one game out of 14 played in their Premier League history in April.

Alan Pardew's side's search for a clean sheet has stretched to 10 games after last weekend's loss to the Baggies, and Hull have only scored six goals in the 10 games that injured striker Nikica Jelavic has missed this season.


TEAM NEWS
Crystal Palace: Jordon Mutch is back in contention after a groin injury, and Chung-yong Lee is also fit again after playing 60 minutes for the development side on Tuesday. 

Fraizer Campbell and Marouane Chamakh are both still on the comeback trail from their hamstring injuries.

Hull City: David Meyler sits the game out through suspension and Andrew Robertson and Curtis Davies are out with ankle and thigh problems.

Mohamed Diame is struggling after suffering minor setbacks regarding his comeback from a knee injury, and Gaston Ramirez faces a late fitness check on his hamstring strain.

Long-term casualties Jelavic and Robert Snodgrass are unlikely to play again this season.

Premier League


Crystal Palace moved up to 14th in the Premier League table as Jason Puncheon's first-half goal gave Tony Pulis's side victory over 10-man Hull.

The midfielder rifled home from Yannick Bolasie's cross after his initial shot had been blocked.

Hull's best chances came when Jake Livermore shot wide while Nikica Jelavic drove across goal as Hull improved after the break.

But they could not find a goal before keeper Allan McGregor was sent off late on for kicking out at Stuart O'Keefe.
