McCarthy to start Bia at Palace
Belgium international Bia, who joined Wolves on loan from Charleroi last month, replaces Matt Jarvis who picked up a calf problem during last weekend's 2-2 draw at Hull. But midfielder Adlene Guedioura, also on loan from Charleroi, is ineligible as he was not signed before the original tie. Goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is poised to be given an outing with strikers Chris Iwelumo, Sam Vokes and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake also pushing for starting roles. Striker Kevin Doyle will have a late check on his fitness after taking a blow to his calf and Achilles against Hull. Wolves (from): Hennessey, Hahnemann, Zubar, Stearman, Craddock, Berra, Ward, Elokobi, Foley, Surman, Henry, Milijas, Jones, Mancienne, Castillo, Bia, Doyle, Vokes, Ebanks-Blake, Iwelumo.
