Blackpool v Palace

Bloomfield Road, Monday 3.00pm

Team news

Manager Ian Holloway is set to make changes after the shocking 4-0 defeat to Birmingham on Friday at Selhurst Park.

Holloway is likely to shuffle his defence against his old side Blackpool with Palace leaking nine goals in the last three games. Peter Ramage may come back in at centre half in place of Danny Gabbidon and Dean Moxey could make way for Jonathan Parr at left-back.

The Eagles welcome back star winger Wilfried Zaha who was suspended against Birmingham. Striker Aruna Dindane could make his Palace debut after joining last week.

Blackpool's Chris Basham will keep his place in the side after coming through the match against Blackburn without any problems following surgery on a fractured cheekbone.

Out for the Tangerines are Ian Evatt (knee) and striker Gary Taylor-Fletcher (hamstring).

Quotes

Neil Warnock

"No one was expecting that [4-0 defeat to Birmingham], I certainly wasn't. Unfortunately I have got to deal with it right now. I think we started the game brightly, got behind them a couple of times.

"We didn't pick out the right ball, didn't get people on the end of it and then their goal seemed to affect everybody out there, which is completely unusual.

"Then they got a second one from a set piece and I was expecting a response like we did away at Watford.

"I can't remember my team missing as many balls flying across the box or making as many wrong decisions as they did out there and they've gone and scored four. That is the last thing we need but we've got to get on with it. We have to bounce back and deal with things better. It is simple as that."

Paul Ince

"If you can't win away from home, make sure you don't lose it. I think we are making progress. We are now unbeaten in four games away from home.

"They are a great bunch of lads, who have gone through a lot of turmoil in the last five or six months.

"We are just trying to get back to where we should be. I love working with these lads and we have to keep believing in ourselves."

Chris Basham

"Obviously Holloway never included me much when he was here but he did brilliantly at Blackpool. You can't fault him for what he achieved.

"But I do have a point to prove. He brought me to this club, so he knows what I've got and hopefully I can show it on Monday.

"A point's a point [against Blackburn]. We'd have taken one before the game. On paper Blackburn's team is very good but so is ours.

"All the lads are so disappointed not to have won as we were on top, got the goal, then we sat back."
