Kieron Dyer will be available for Ipswich for the last time.

Dyer was back on the bench at Burnley last weekend after recovering from a thigh injury and will be in the squad for the final game of his loan spell from West Ham.

Manager Paul Jewell will be without striker Tamas Priskin - who has joined Swansea on loan for the rest of the season - while young midfielder Reggie Lambe was sent to Bristol Rovers.

Goalkeeper Brian Murphy has made his comeback after three months out with a broken ankle and is available, though Jewell has made a change in goal recently with Arran Lee-Barrett starting the last two games ahead of Marton Fulop.

Youngster Josh Carson will continue to play out wide as Jewell has no fresh injury concerns.

Crystal Palace will check on David Wright.

The midfielder was forced to miss last weekend's 2-1 win over Barnsley due to a calf injury.

With Alex Marrow still on the sidelines with an ankle problem, Swansea loanee Kemy Agustien was handed his debut against the Tykes and he will be in line to deputise again if Wright is ruled out.

Veteran midfielder Gavin Mahon, who recently joined on loan from QPR, could be added to the squad if boss Dougie Freedman feels he is fit enough.

Left-back Lee Hills (knee) is still out but right-back Nathaniel Clyne will make his 100th appearance for the club at the age of just 20.
