Preston are likely to makes changes as they prepare for a crunch bottom-of-the-table clash.

Caretaker-manager David Unsworth may prefer youngster Jamie Douglas to Paul Parry in attack alongside Chris Brown after Jon Parkin completed his switch to Cardiff.

Changes could be in the offing at the back as well after Wayne Brown went off injured and was replaced by rookie Conor McLaughlin, who could partner the recalled Sean St Ledger.

On-loan Burnley defender Leon Cort is also in contention after the two clubs agreed to extend his terms at Deepdale.

Preston are six points adrift of safety and are looking to avoid a third loss on the spin.

Crystal Palace begin life without manager George Burley.

The former Scotland boss was sacked following the 3-0 defeat by Millwall on New Year's Day, with his assistant Dougie Freedman placed in temporary charge.

Burley signed former Tottenham striker Steffen Iversen prior to his dismisal and he could figure if he receives international clearance in time.

Midfielder Alex Marrow is a doubt after he was withdrawn less than an hour in against Millwall with a knock to his ankle, but full-back David Wright returns after suspension.

Centre-half Claude Davis will be checked over after missing out against the Lions with a hamstring strain.

The Eagles have now failed to win their last five league games.
