Crystal Palace prepare to entertain Burnley at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 4 of the 11 previous games, with the Eagles winning just 2.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Selhurst Park was less than a year ago, in January 2003, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides
Crystal Palace's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Eagles have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
Burnley's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Clarets have hit 7 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Crystal Palace find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 31 points from their 26 matches. Burnley are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 28 points from 26 matches.
