Freedman: Defensive dilemmas for Palace

Freedman: Defensive dilemmas for Palace

Crystal Palace are still without Dean Moxey, Nathaniel Clyne and Steffen Iversen for the visit of Burnley.

Moxey remains suspended after a red card at the end of last season - he still has two matches to serve after Tuesday's Carling Cup clash with Crawley was postponed.

Fellow full-back Clyne is still sidelined with a foot injury so Peter Ramage, Ryan McGivern and Andrew Davies are set to continue in defence after making their debuts in the opening-day defeat at Peterborough.

Veteran striker Iversen is around a fortnight from a return with a hamstring injury.

Australian midfielder Mile Jedinak is unlikely to be involved as he is short of fitness and defender Lee Hills remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury.

Burnley boss Eddie Howe is boosted by the return of winger Keith Treacy and striker Alex MacDonald for the trip to Crystal Palace.

Both players missed the Clarets' 6-3 extra-time win over Burton in the Carling Cup first round on Tuesday night.

Treacy, a summer signing from Preston, won his sixth full cap as a substitute in the Republic of Ireland's 0-0 friendly draw against Croatia in Dublin on Wednesday night.

And MacDonald won his third Scotland Under-21 cap after coming off the bench in the 3-0 win over Norway.

Both men will be available at Selhurst Park but striker Martin Paterson remains sidelined with a troublesome thigh injury and defender Danny Fox has joined Southampton.

Paterson missed much of last season with the injury and a scan this week revealed a tear in his thigh muscle that will require a further spell on the sidelines.
