The goalkeeper joined Palace this summer as Patrick Vieira's second signing, and will make his first outing between the sticks in the 19:15 BST kick-off. Supporters should note the change in kick-off time, which was originally 19:00.
He's joined by fellow first-team player Jaroslaw Jach, who starts ahead of him in defence.
Elsewhere in a strong starting lineup are Nya Kirby, Scott Banks and Sean Robertson, who plays his second game in a week after a long spell returning to fitness.
Like Robertson, several of the lads who overcame Dulwich 5-0 start this evening, with Jake O'Brien and Tayo Adaramola also named.
On the bench, Pape Souaré continues his fitness work with the Palace Academy and a promising attacking trio of Brandon Pierrick, Victor Akinwale and John-Kymani Gordon act as offensive options.
Former Palace Academy forward James Daly starts for the hosts.
