Team news

Palace midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate has recovered from his ankle injury and is available for selection. Keeper Julian Speroni is still out, along with Pape Souare (shoulder).

Winger Wilfried Zaha is suspended after failing in his appeal to overturn a one-match ban for improper conduct in the recent game against Southampton.

Doncaster defender Andy Butler is back from suspension, however Tyler Smith and Rian McLean are both cup tied.


Roy Hodgson

"Im expecting a big challenge. Theyre doing very well at the moment and weve got a lot of respect for them. Weve watched the videos of their team play and been impressed, and of course theyre on a good run of results as well.

"Its not going to be an easy one by any stretch of the imagination and weve seen so many examples of that already. Doncaster are a team thats on the verge of the Championship so were preparing for a real tough one."

Grant McCann

"We won't change the way we play. We will play our game. If it's good enough its good enough. If its not, it's not.

"Id be mad to try to sit behind the ball against Crystal Palace and let them have the ball.

"Theyre Premier League players. Although Id probably be mad pressing them as well. Who knows? Well see.

"It's a game we can go and give everything we have. If its good enough, then great. If its not, at least we gave it a good go."
