Match Preview

Danns set for Eagles start Neil Danns is in line to return to the Crystal Palace starting XI for the visit of Ipswich. The midfielder started on the bench during last weekend's defeat at Barnsley having missed the first two games of the season through suspension. The Eagles have no new injury worries with winger Sean Scannell and defender Lee Hills (both knee) the only absentees. Teenage midfielder Stuart O'Keefe could be on the bench after joining from League Two Southend on a free transfer earlier this week. David Wright, Darren Ambrose, Alan Lee and Owen Garvan are all likely to feature against their former club, who were managed by Eagles boss George Burley for eight years. Ipswich begin life without Jon Walters. Former captain Walters was left out of the 1-1 draw with Burnley last weekend after his reaction to manager Roy Keane`s decision to strip him of the armband and has subsequently joined Stoke. Defender Darren O`Dea could make his debut after joining on loan from Celtic while Tottenham winger Andros Townsend impressed on his bow last week and should keep his place. Midfielder David Norris celebrated being named as new skipper by scoring his third goal in two games against the Clarets and he will continue to be partnered by teenager Luke Hyam. But Grant Leadbitter is a doubt after only lasting 45 minutes of that draw before coming off with an ankle injury. Centre-half Gareth McAuley has recovered from a back injury but winger Carlos Edwards has a groin injury which will sideline him for several weeks. Mark Kennedy sustained a hamstring injury on his debut a fortnight ago and is not fit. Former Tractor Boys David Wright and Owen Garvan should be in George Burley`s Palace side.

Match Report

Tractor Boys raid the Palece Ipswich spoiled Edgar Davids' day as goals from Grant Leadbitter and Carlos Edwards sank Crystal Palace 2-1. Leadbitter tucked away his first goal since January from the penalty spot after Claude Davis was sent off. Edwards, meanwhile, finished from close range as Roy Keane's visitors maintained their solid start to the npower Championship season. Town also ended the game a man down after Tottenham loanee Andros Townsend saw red for a foul on goalkeeper Julian Speroni, before Neil Danns pulled one back in stoppage time for the hosts. Davids, the 37-year-old Dutch legend who counts European giants AC Milan, Juventus and Ajax among his former clubs, was in the crowd at Selhurst Park after coming out of retirement to seal his surprise move to south London. `Edgar the Eagle' was introduced to the Palace fans at half-time, and his debut will be all the more eagerly anticipated after the hosts fell apart in the second half. There was a definite feelgood factor around the ground after the club finally came out of administration this week. But it was Town who made the livelier start with Jon Stead forcing an early save from Julian Speroni before Edwards skied a shot. Townsend drilled a long-range effort wide and Speroni was back in action when he tipped a looping cross from Stead against his own crossbar. Palace youngster Kieron Cadogan fired high over the bar as the hosts briefly threatened, but the game turned three minutes after the interval when Stead burst into the penalty area. Davis pulled the Ipswich striker back and was shown a straight red card by referee Jon Moss, while Leadbitter stepped up to coolly send Speroni the wrong way from the spot. Palace boss George Burley was forced into a reshuffle with defender Adam Barrett replacing Cadogan. But before they could settle Ipswich forced a second goal, Leadbitter swinging over an inviting cross which Edwards toe-poked into the net at the far post. The visitors could have had a third goal in the 64th minute when Edwards crossed and Gareth McAuley put his header wide. A flowing Palace move then ended with Andy Dorman shooting narrowly over, before referee Moss evened up the numbers. The official had little choice but to send Townsend off after the Spurs youngster's high foot caught Speroni in the head, leaving the Palace goalkeeper in a heap. The Eagles grabbed a deserved consolation but Danns' injury-time header from Nathaniel Clyne's cross came too late to spark a fightback.
