Team News: Kaikai Handed First Start

17 January 2017

Eagles boss Sam Allardyce has made wholesale changes to his side for tonight’s FA Cup third round replay against Bolton Wanderers, with Sullay Kaikai handed his first ever start for Palace.

The winger, who came on for his third Eagles first-team appearance at the Macron Stadium 10 days ago, is one of seven changes to the side that lost 3-0 at West Ham United on Saturday, with Joel Ward, Damien Delaney, Andros Townsend and Joe Ledley the only survivors.

Julian Speroni returns in goal, and Loic Remy is also handed his first home appearance against the Trotters, who have made no alterations to their side that lost 2-1 to Swindon Town on the weekend as Phil Parkinson has kept faith with the same XI that started against the Eagles in the original tie.

Palace: Speroni, Ward, Kelly, Delaney, Fryers, Lee, Flamini, Ledley, Townsend, Kaikai, Remy. Subs: Hennessey, Tomkins, Phillips, Cabaye, Husin, Puncheon, C. Benteke.

Bolton: Alnwick, Wilson, Wheater, Beevers, A. Taylor, Thorpe, Spearing, Henry, Vela, Clough, Madine. Subs: Turner, Moxey, Derik, Trotter, C. Taylor, Clayton, Proctor.
