Team news: U23s in crucial final league game v Watford

18 April 2019

Crystal Palace Under-23s are today facing the biggest match of their season as they prepare to host a visiting Watford side in a clash that could potentially see them land a place in the Professional Development League play-offs.

Richard Shaw's men currently sit third in the table with just one game remaining and will pull themselves level with Coventry City should they earn victory this afternoon. However, to finish second they will need to win by at least four goals against the Hornets and thereby overtake the Sky Blues to earn a spot in the play-offs.

Facing the test today is a strong Development lineup that includes Ryan Inniss from the first-team squad.

He is joined by James Daly as he continues his spell in red and blue whilst on loan at Kingstonian as well as last week's goalscorer Kian Flanagan and the high-scoring Levi Lumeka and Gio McGregor.

Shaw's starting XI also sees Ollie O'Dwyer amongst the back four for the first time since January in a 2-1 win over local rivals Millwall.

Palace: Webber, D.Boateng, Mitchell, M.Boateng, O’Dwyer, Inniss, Kelly, McGregor, Daly, Flanagan, Lumeka.

Subs: Jacob Russell, Mensah, Hobbs, Pierrick, Aveiro.
