Montgomery banned for Palace visit
The midfielder was booked for the fifth time this season in the midweek goalless draw with Nottingham Forest and must now serve a one-match ban. On-loan defender Toni Kallio has failed to recover from illness, while striker Darius Henderson is still struggling with a hip injury. Goalkeeper Mark Bunn is likely to retain his place between the sticks due to injuries to Ian Bennett (thumb) and fellow loanee Carl Ikeme (calf). Blackwell told the club's official website: "Toni was sent home by the doctor on Thursday because he is still showing signs of tonsilitis, but overall we are looking at the same squad we had out against Forest."
