Centre-half Davis picked up his fifth booking of the season during the 3-1 Boxing Day win over Ipswich and serves a one-match ban, while right-back Butterfield is still missing with a hamstring injury.

Youngster Lee Hills, recently back from a loan spell with Oldham, is set to come in at left-back at the Liberty Stadium with Clint Hill switching to the middle in place of Davis.

Another rookie full-back, Nathanial Clyne, continues in place of Butterfield who could be back for the FA Cup clash with Sheffield Wednesday next week.

Striker Freddie Sears looks set to play his last game for Palace with West Ham likely to recall him from his loan spell in the new year.
