Selhurst Park, Tuesday 3.00pm
Jonathan Williams could start after fully recovering from his recent injury, but captain Paddy McCarthy (groin) remains sidelined.
Wolves striker Bjorn Sigurdarson and midfielder David Davis are set to keep their places in the side, while Jamie O'Hara is likely to be on the bench. Stephen Hunt and George Elokobi are both out.
"Everybody wants a piece of the dream. The dream is the Premier League - the money is getting more and more and more. Really it proves the world is what it is. Seven deadly sins - one of them is greed.
"Everybody is driving for that. We had a piece of it - when I was with another club and it was quite sensational. And really all these owners now, that's what they want. They are one step away from it now and if they don't get what they want they think they can just change somebody and get rid of them. It's not that easy.
"You can throw money at it and get it horribly wrong. You can go bankrupt. It's about building something.
"Do I know more than most that those vultures at the top who get bigger and bigger and bigger with the Champions League money, they'll be swooping - won't they?
"And it's pretty frustrating really. It's just not right. Some of these young lads should be left to play - and play well - learn their game. The great thing about Crystal Palace is they've helped Wilfried Zaha play over 100 games and he's still only just 20."
"At the moment, we look a little bit scared and that must not be the case. Now we must show everyone we have the character. We have had the two worst performances of the season and it canít get any worse than these two games.
"I can say, straightaway, we are all in it together. Having said that, those who have been here for five, six or seven years will struggle with the change of style Ė especially when things are tough Ė more than players who come in later and are maybe more used to it.
"When you keep playing one-touch football instead of controlling the ball, I donít think that has anything to do with style Ė itís more to do with winning over yourself. You play better when youíre more confident."
