Preview: Sunderland v Crystal Palace

10 April 2015

ABOUT
Palace travel to the north-east to face Sunderland looking to continue their fine away record which has seen them win six of their last seven games away from Selhurst Park.

However Dick Advocaat's side will be buoyed following their derby day win against Newcastle United on Sunday which lifted them three points clear of the relegation zone.

Sunderland have only scored more than twice in two Premier League games this term, but one of those was their 3-1 win against Palace in November, however only West Bromwich Albion have conceded more goals at home than Sunderland's 22.


TEAM NEWS
Sunderland: The Black Cats have no new injury worries heading into this game, with Wes Brown their highest-profile casualty.

The defender will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, and Ricky Alvarez and Emmanuel Giaccherini have also had a premature end to their campaigns with knee and ankle problems respectively.

Jack Rodwell has a hamstring issue and is unlikely to be fit for this weekend.

Crystal Palace: Mile Jedinak is available again after serving his four match ban and Alan Pardew revealed that Joe Ledley has a slight hip strain, which will mean he needs to be monitored before the game.

The manager said that the rest of the squad was fit and well.
