Palace v Leeds ? Team news preview

Last updated : 11 August 2006 By Nik Taylor

Palace should be unchanged for the Sunday lunchtime match against Leeds.

Danny Butterfield is the only new injury concern, but his hamstring pull is expected to have cleared up by kick-off time. New signing Matt Lawrence is ready to cover should Butterfield miss out.

Michael Hughes is still on the sidelines as he continues his recovery from a broken arm.

Last season's beaten play-off finalists Leeds have a few players missing, with keeper Neil Sullivan, striker Richard Cresswell and new signing Kevin Nicholls all out with leg injuries.

Probable Palace XI:

Butterfield Cort Hudson Granville
Soares Fletcher Kennedy McAnuff
Scowcroft Macken
