Palace looking to freeze out Wednesday

Jose Fonte faces a late fitness test ahead of Crystal Palace's tie with Sheffield Wednesday.

Neil Warnock will be looking to extend the Eagles' unbeaten run to nine matches when they take on the Owls at Selhurst Park.

Fonte missed the game against Barnsley last Saturday with a thigh strain, and if unavailable Clint Hill will remain in the centre of defense, along side Mark Hudson.

Paul Ifill and Tony Craig are still long term injury casualties, and Mark Kennedy is still missing with an Achilles injury.

Wednesday look likely to start with Deon Burton and Akpo Sodje up front who have both recovered from injuries.

They will be joined by Frank Simek and Steve Watson who have also recovered in time to travel with the Wednesday squad to London.

However Michael Johnson remains sidelined with a back strain while Richard Wood (dislocated shoulder) and Francis Jeffers (ankle) are long-term absentees.
