Double boost for lightweight Palace

08 January 2010 10:15
Boss Neil Warnock could only name four substitutes for last weekend's FA Cup win at Sheffield Wednesday with winger Moses (foot) and right-back Butterfield (hamstring) sidelined.

But both have trained this week ahead of Saturday's Championship clash at home to City and were joined by veteran defender Matt Lawrence, who could figure for the first time since September.

Lawrence was placed on the transfer list after the 4-0 home defeat by Scunthorpe and has been frozen out ever since, but he has recovered from a muscle strain and is set to be included at Selhurst Park.

Warnock will be without Sean Scannell (hamstring), Paddy McCarthy (shoulder) and Nick Carle, who has been on international duty with Australia.

Aptly-named youngster Alex Wynter made his debut at Hillsborough and could be on the bench again.
