Palace v Peterborough United

Selhurst Park, Saturday 3.00pm



Team news

Victor Moses won't play for cash-strapped Palace as a transfer is being lined up for the young winger. Claude Davis (neck), Paddy McCarthy (shoulder), Sean Scannell (hamstring) and Darryl Flahavan (jaw) are out, and Johannes Ertl (hamstring) is a doubt.

Peterborough striker Craig Mackail-Smith hopes to have beaten off illness to play, while Chris Whelpdale and Josh Simpson face fitness tests.


Roy Hodgson

"I know there will be clubs eyeing up all the talent we have coming through from our youth scheme and thinking they can get players for a song. Let's hope that doesn't happen. And to be fair to the lads they responded superbly at Newcastle. We didn't just go for damage limitation like a lot of teams do up there. We don't fear anyone no matter how much money they are earning. I was proud of the performance."

Mark Cooper

"We know what we have to do and that's get 10 wins. It won't be easy tomorrow and the fact that Crystal Palace have gone into administration this week and lost 10 points will make them tougher opponents. Clubs tend to pull together in times of crisis and I expect Palace to do just that, but we believe we can win there."
