Tony Popovic and Dougie Freedman should be fit for action against Sheffield United after recovering from calf injuries.

Hayden Mullins returns after completing his suspension and Dele Adebola has recovered from his illness.

Aki Riihilahti (thigh) and Jamie Smith (hamstring) are out while Darren Powell serves a two-match ban.

Matt Clarke will return to full training later this month and could even make an appearance before the end of the season.

Palace will have to watch out for former player Steve Kabba who will be keen to score against us.

United will be hoping Peter Ndlovu is back from international duty with Zimbabwe in time.

Steve Kabba

Little needs to be said about one of the many "ones that got away". Many Palace fans still see Kabba's cut-price sale as Tricky Trev's biggest mistake yet. That point could be well beyond doubt at 5 o clock on Saturday afternoon.
