Wickham in line for debut start

17 August 2009 02:39
The 16-year-old was a half-time substitute in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Leicester and boss Roy Keane could be set to include him from the start against the Eagles. David Norris is set to be out for four months after a scan revealed knee ligament damage following an injury he picked up in the opening day defeat at Coventry. Midfielder Jamie Peters is also a doubt after he picked up an ankle injury against the Foxes while defender Ben Thatcher misses out due to a knee problem but could feature for the reserves this week. Striker Pablo Counago remains sidelined with a groin injury while Luciano Civelli is out for the rest of the year with a serious knee problem. Ipswich 4/5, Draw 5/2, Crystal Palace 7/2
