Crystal Palace will be without defender Damien Delaney because of an ankle problem for Saturday’s Premier League clash at Southampton.

Midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi is set to feature having been suspended for the home defeat by Swansea last weekend, while fit-again winger Jerome Thomas could also be in contention to start.

Midfielder Yannick Bolasie (hamstring) is still sidelined. Captain Paddy McCarthy (groin) continues his rehabilitation, along with forward Glenn Murray (knee). Midfielder Jonny Williams and defender Jack Hunt (both ankle) are long-term absentees.

Provisional Squad: Speroni, Gabbidon, Moxey, Mariappa, Campana, Guedioura, Bannan, Thomas, Jedinak, Chamakh, Jerome, Gayle, Puncheon, Alexander, O’Keefe, Phillips, Kebe, Kagisho Dikgacoi.
