Team News: Speroni To Break Record

7 January 2017


Julian Speroni will break Crystal Palace's appearance record for a goalkeeper against Bolton Wanderers this afternoon in the FA Cup third round.

The veteran custodian has been handed a start at the Macron Stadium, which will take him to 389 Eagles games in all competitions and surpass John Jackson's record haul.

Meanwhile, Loic Remy will make his Palace debut as he is fit enough to start up front alongside Fraizer Campbell, and Chung-yong Lee will line-up against his former club, while there are also starts for Zeki Fryers and Jordon Mutch.

Bolton meanwhile have made three changes from the side that drew 2-2 with Coventry City on Monday night, with Zack Clough, Lawie Wilson and Tom Thorpe all coming into the side.

Former Eagle Dean Moxey is named on the Trotters' bench.

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

Palace: Speroni, Ward, Kelly, Delaney, Fryers, Flamini, Ledley, Mutch, Lee, Campbell, Remy. Subs: Perntreou, Tomkins, Cabaye, Husin, Kaikai, Townsend, Wan-Bissaka.
