Team news

Crystal Palace boss Neil warnock may wield the axe after the Eagles surrendered a two goal lead to lose 4-2 at Burmley in midweek.

Matt Lawrence (hamstring) and Paddy McCarthy (shoulder) will miss out, but on-loan Derby defender Claude Davis should play alongside Jose Fonte in defence. Victor Moses may be fit enough to make the bench.

Swansea defender Garry Monk hopes to have recovered from a recent back injury, while Mark Gower and Fede Bessone are set to return.

Quotes

Roy Hodgson

"I'd like to get a few of the injured players back because we've got an horrific week with the fixtures. Once we've got the points we need then we've got some terrific young players who can come in and have a few games between now and the end of the season."

Striker Jason Scotland

"It may be more difficult now that we’re in the top six. It’s added pressure. For me, I’d be happy if we were out of the play-offs until the final day, as long as we got there.

“Teams will be treating us as a top-six side, rather than a newly-promoted side just outside the play-offs. They will be coming here gunning for us now and it will be hard to stay there.

"I don’t think we’ll be worried about playing nice football now – if we have to grind out 1-0 wins, that’s not a problem. At this stage, three points is all that matters."
