City v Palace

Last updated : 30 December 2006 By Michael Morris

But the Bluebirds are unable to call on winger Kevin Cooper and French striker Luigi Glombard, who are suffering from respective calf and hamstring strains.

Crystal Palace could welcome back Leon Cort after the defender missed the last eight games with a hamstring injury.

Michael Hughes (ankle) and Julian Speroni (groin) are both out so Scott Flinders will continue in goal.
