Pre Season

Sakho and Wickham start tonight at AFC Wimbledon

30 July 2019

Mamadou Sakho is back in the Palace starting XI after a five month absence and Connor Wickham is given a starting berth at the Cherry Red Records stadium in south-west London tonight, in what is Palace's penultimate pre-season friendly.

New goalkeeper Stephen Henderson starts in goal having made his first Palace appearance at Barnet.  Sakho will play alongside Sam Woods, with Nikola Tavares and new U23s addition Lewis Hobbs as full-backs.  Jairo Riedewald joins Luke Dreher and Giovanni McGregor in the centre of midfield, with Brandon Pierrick, Wickham and James Daly likely to feature as a front three.

A notable inclusion in the hosts' starting XI is former Eagle Kwesi Appiah, and is acting as AFC Wimbledon's captain tonight.
