Eagles to check on Speroni

Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman will hand Julian Speroni a late fitness test before naming his squad for the trip to Burnley.The 31-year-old goalkeeper suffered a slight groin injury during the closing stages of last weekend's 3-3 draw with Reading, although the Eagles boss is confident a week`s worth of rest will have done his first-choice shot-stopper good.Lewis Price, who arrived at the club from Derby in the summer, will make his debut if Speroni fails to recover in time.Striker Jermaine Easter will be hoping for a starting role after stepping off the bench to earn his side a point against the Royals, but midfielder Alex Marrow is unlikely to feature despite returning to light training following an ankle injury.Left-back Matty Parsons has joined Barnet on a month's loan, while fellow full-back Lee Hills remains a long-term absentee with a knee problem.
