The midfielder has been struggling with a back injury but was able to play some part in training on Tuesday morning.

Winger Sean Scannell is set to miss out with a groin problem and defender Paddy McCarthy is a long-term absentee with a shoulder injury.

Boss Neil Warnock, who was denied permission to bring in a loan player by the Football League, is unlikely to be able to name seven substitutes.

Warnock also wants to give at least one of his established players a rest with Palace's fight against relegation in mind.
