Gareth Williams could be handed a first start of the season in tonight's Carling Cup tie at home to Doncaster Rovers.
Boss Kember said: "We certainly wont be underestimating Doncaster because they're going to come here eager to cause an upset and will work their socks off out there. I expect us to match them in work rate and hopefully our extra ability will see us through."
Doncaster winger Francis Tierney is a doubt due to a calf strain and manager Dave Penney is aware of Palace's threat: "They started the season well, but, by all accounts have been playing well recently without really getting the
goals - a bit like ourselves. It's going to be a big test."
