Blackpool v Palace. Match preview

Last updated : 27 October 2008 By Palace Reporter
Taylor-Fletcher scored his third goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Derby but he received a kick on the foot in the closing stages and was substituted.

He was limping after the game but has declared himself fit to face Palace which is a major boost to boss Simon Grayson.

Striker Steve Kabba missed the midweek win due to an ankle injury and was replaced in attack by Alan Gow, who got on the scoresheet and looks set to keep his place alongside Ben Burgess.

On-loan Derby left-back Mo Camara is available again after being ineligible to face his parent club but forward Steve McPhee is expected to remain sidelined with a calf strain.

Crystal Palace will once again be without striker Alan Lee when they take on Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Saturday afternoon

Lee, who has started just one game since his £600,000 move from Ipswich in August, has suffered a setback in his attempt to recover from a hamstring injury and is still sidelined.

With James Scowcroft (hamstring) and Calvin Andrew (knee) struggling, on-loan West Brom forward Craig Beattie will continue in attack.

Beattie's initial one-month loan spell from West Brom comes to an end after Tuesday night's home game against Nottingham Forest.

Boss Neil Warnock will check on centre-half Paddy McCarthy, who is recovering from a dislocated shoulder.

Right-back Danny Butterfield returned from a hamstring injury against Birmingham in midweek and should keep his place.
