Team News: Gayle Starts For Palace

3 March 2015

Dwight Gayle returns up front for Crystal Palace for tonight's Premier League game against Southampton at St Mary's Stadium.

The striker sat out the weekend win against West Ham United but comes back into the side for the suspended Glenn Murray as one of three changes to Alan Pardew's Eagles.

Midfield duo James McArthur and Joe Ledley also return, coming in for the suspended Mile Jedinak and the injured Jordon Mutch.

Youngsters Hiram Boateng and Jake Gray are named on the bench, with both looking to make their Premier League debuts tonight.

Ronald Koeman meanwhile makes two alterations to his side that lost 1-0 to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Eljero Elia replaces Florian Gardos in a repeat of their early substitution against the Baggies, and Filip Djuricic comes in for Dusan Tadic.

Southampton: Forster, Bertrand, Yoshida, Fonte, Clyne, Wanyama, Schneiderlin, Elia, Djuricic, Mane, Pelle. Subs: K Davis, Gardos, Alderweireld, Ward-Prowse, S. Davis, Tadic, Long.

Palace: Speroni, Kelly, Delaney, Dann, Ward, McArthur, Ledley, Zaha, Puncheon, Bolasie, Gayle. Subs: Hennessey, Mariappa, Hangeland, Souare, Boateng, Gray, Ameobi.
