Crystal Palace Under-23s face Hull City this afternoon at Copers Cope and have named their lineup for the Development fixture, with Richard Shaw starting last week's goalscorer Kian Flanagan in midfield.
Having drawn with Birmingham City at Selhurst Park in their opening fixture of the 2019/20 campaign, the Eagles then defeated Crewe Alexandra thanks to a fine Flanagan effort and so have begun their season strongly.
Today, they welcome a talented Hull side to south London and have fielded a relatively young starting XI to take them on.
Exciting, talented prospects such as Brandon Aveiro, Rob Street and Brandon Pierrick continue to bridge the gap between the Under-18s and Under-23s while more seasoned players such as Jason Lokilo, Jacob Mensah and former first-team substitute Joe Tupper add greater experience to the mix.
Young Lion Bello makes the bench as he stepped-up from Under-16 to Under-18 level just last season, progressing well with the Academy team and earning a place in Shaw's squad for the 1pm kick off today.
Palace: Tupper, D.Boateng, Mensah, Trialist, Jude Russell, M.Boateng, Pierrick, Flanagan, Aveiro, Street, Lokilo.
Subs: Webber, Addy, Steele, Bello, Ajayi.
Hull: Andrew, Odunston, Jacob, Bonds, Smith, Hanson, Hamilton, Chadwick, Sisay, Jones, Salam.
Subs: Mannion, Rouse, Snelgrove, Lovick, Carew.
