Dean Moxey returns to the Palace squad to face Crawley.

Full-back Moxey has been forced to sit out the first four matches of the campaign through suspension due to a red card at the end of last season.

But Palace still have injury problems with Kagisho Dikgacoi out for a month with hamstring trouble and fellow midfielder Owen Garvan struggling with a hip injury.

Striker Glenn Murray is not expected to play due to an ankle problem and right-back Nathaniel Clyne is a long-term absentee with a foot injury.

Eagles boss Dougie Freedman re-signed centre-half Anthony Gardner last week but says he will not be available until next month as he works on his fitness.

Matt Tubbs could return to Crawley's starting line-up for the trip to Selhurst.

The striker, who has three goals to his name already this season, complained of a headache before Saturday's 3-1 win at Torquay and was an unused substitute.

Wes Thomas, a summer signing from Cheltenham, made his Town debut in Tubbs' absence.

Teenage midfielder Michael Doughty got a late run-out as a substitute after joining on loan from QPR on Friday and will be pushing for a start.

Midfielder Dannie Bulman is expected to miss out again with an ankle injury while skipper Pablo Mills (ankle) and fellow defender Jamie Day (back) are still on the sidelines.
