Palace v Scunthorpe United

Selhurst Park, Saturday 3.00pm



Team news

Claude Davis is ready to make his second Crystal Palace debut after completing his move before the window closed last month. The defender impressed while on loan from Derby last season and will replace the suspended Paddy McCarthy who saw red at Peterbrough in Palace's last match.

Stern John (elbow) and Calvin Andrew (knee) are still sidelined. Freddie Sears reported back from international duty with England U21s without any injury concerns.

Scunthorpe defender Rob Jones is back in the squad after recovering from concussion. Defender Niall Canavan (ankle) has also recovered.


Nigel Adkins

"It's a game we're looking forward to. It's a good game for us to return to league action in from our international break.

"It will be tough. I went to watch them play at Peterborough last week and they're a direct side, although they do have a lot of flair too.

"They're a team who have lots of experience and they're physical. I think Neil Warnock is a great character, and he's got a fantastic desire to win. His passion is there for all to see.

"They've got some talented players in the form of Victor Moses and Freddie Sears, who is on loan from West Ham.

"We've trained well over the last two weeks, and we're ready. We need to go down to try and get something.

"I think this will be the toughest game of the season so far. They're well drilled, organised and can destroy any team.

"We've got to keep ourselves on our toes. They will be up there come the end, they're a great team. We have to stand up and be counted."
