Crystal Palace will be without the suspended Kagisho Dikgacoi for their Barclays Premier League clash with Swansea on Sunday.

The midfielder was sent off in last weekend’s 2-0 defeat at Manchester United and the Eagles have decided against launching an appeal but manager Ian Holloway has welcomed Jerome Thomas back to training following an ankle injury, with Yannick Bolasie also nearing a return from his hamstring problem.

Jonny Williams and Jack Hunt (both ankle) and Joel Ward (calf) will miss out with captain Paddy McCarthy (groin) and striker Glenn Murray (knee) also absent.

Provisional squad: Speroni, Alexander, Delaney, Parr, Moxey, Gabbidon, Mariappa, O’Keefe, Jedinak, Campana, Guedioura, Bannan, Kebe, Thomas, Grandin, Puncheon, Chamakh, Gayle, Phillips, Jerome.
