Palace v Southend: Team news preview

Last updated : 08 August 2006 By Nik Taylor

Peter Taylor takes charge of his first home Palace game tonight against his former club Southend, hoping to push on from Saturday's winning start.

The Eagles boss has no new injury concerns to worry about ahead of the game, although Clinton Morrison may sit this one out.

The striker was subsituted at half time against Ipswich as he hadn't fully recovered from an illness. That could mean Dougie Freedman accompanies James Scowcroft up front.

Probable Palace XI:

Butterfield Ward Cort Granville
McAnuff Fletcher Kennedy Soares
Scowcroft Freedman
