Cardiff hope to be able to call on goalkeeper David Marshall for their home clash with the Eagles.

The Bluebirds stopper was substituted at half-time in the 3-0 victory at Derby on Wednesday night, after he complained of feeling unwell.

But manager Malky Mackay should be able to restore the 26-year-old in-between the sticks as Cardiff look to extend their unbeaten run to five games in all competitions.

Striker Rudy Gestede will continue to miss out because of a hamstring injury but Kenny Miller returned to the starting line-up at Pride Park sporting a protective headband, and he is expected to keep his place.

The Scottish forward required 20 stitches to a head injury sustained in the 5-3 win over Barnsley on October 22.

Mile Jedinak should return to the Crystal Palace squad for the trip to Cardiff.

The Australia midfielder was rested for Tuesday night's goalless draw against Portsmouth as he became a father the night before.

Winger Sean Scannell and midfielder Jonathan Williams will also be pushing for recalls should boss Dougie Freedman opt to rotate his squad.

However, there will be no changes in defence with Palace having kept an impressive six consecutive clean sheets.

Owen Garvan is fit after a knee injury but has not managed to break into the squad recently, fellow midfielder Alex Marrow is still on the sidelines with an ankle problem and full-back Lee Hills is recovering from a long-term knee injury.
