Match Preview

Duo back for Eagles Darren Ambrose and Alex Marrow could return for Crystal Palace's clash with Bristol City. Last year's top scorer Ambrose has been out of action with a hamstring injury since New Year's Day, while fellow midfielder Marrow has been struggling with an ankle knock since November. New manager Dougie Freedman rates the pair at 50/50 to feature this weekend while Jermaine Easter is poised to start his first game for the Eagles. The striker made his debut as a substitute during last week's 3-0 defeat at Swansea after joining from MK Dons. Defender Lee Hills is still on the sidelines with a knee problem. Bristol City boss Keith Millen will make changes for the trip. Millen is concerned about his side`s battling qualities after successive heavy home defeats to Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough. Defenders Liam Fontaine and Louis Carey have now fully recovered from the injuries that sidelined them throughout December and are likely to feature at Selhurst Park. Fontaine seems certain to replace Kalifa Cisse, who endured a nightmare performance at centre-back against Boro, scoring an own goal and making a series of unforced errors before being substituted. Millen will also be tempted to reinstate the experienced Carey at right-back - a selection that will permit the combative Cole Skuse to return to his more familiar role in the centre of midfield. "I have to look at the way we are playing and I have to look at the personnel. I don't have a massive squad available to me at the moment but I need to pick a team that will fight for everything at Crystal Palace," said Millen. "We've lost that edge in the last couple of games and, all of a sudden, we look easy to beat. I have a couple of players who are coming back to fitness now and they are probably ready to come back in."

Match Report

Freedman still waiting for a win Dougie Freedman is still looking for his first win since taking over as permanent Crystal Palace boss after they drew 0-0 with Bristol City. The visitors looked to be there for the taking, having shipped seven goals without reply in successive defeats by Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough. But former Eagles striker Freedman, who was confirmed as George Burley's successor last week, was left frustrated as his side failed to take advantage and missed the chance to climb out of the npower Championship relegation zone. Darren Ambrose came closest to finding the net for the hosts when he rattled the post early in the second half, and City's Ivan Sproule repeated the trick at the other end late on. But with two sides desperately lacking in confidence in front of goal a stalemate was always on the cards. After a tentative start from both teams, City created the first chance for Brett Pitman. Jamal Campbell-Ryce sent over an inviting cross but Pitman, looking for his 12th goal of the season, crashed his volley wide. Palace's jittery rearguard then gave Albert Adomah the time and space to shoot but his effort flew too high. David James was in the City goal after the club successfully appealed against his red card against Boro, and he was called into action for the first time on the half hour. Jermaine Easter, making his full Palace debut after joining from MK Dons, drilled a shot in from 20 yards and James made a comfortable save. Moments later Pitman took aim from 25 yards with a fierce drive which just cleared Julian Speroni's crossbar. Palace's best opportunity of the first half came shortly before the interval when Pablo Counago's shot was blocked by Damion Stewart and the ball fell to Darren Ambrose, whose curling effort was plucked out of the air by James. Ambrose, back in the Palace side after another spell on the sidelines, came agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock five minutes after the interval when his 20-yard drive cannoned back off the post with James beaten. Freedman threw on Steffen Iversen and Sean Scannell in a bid to find an elusive goal. But instead it was City who almost snatched a dramatic win nine minutes from time when Sproule let fly only to be denied by the woodwork.
