Crystal Palace are in desperate need of a victory as Aston Villa travel to Selhurst Park.
The relegation threatened Eagles have not won since October - despite playing some very good football in between.
Villa have not lost to Palace in over ten years, but they have only won once in their last seven so victory is by no means assured.
Eagles boss Iain Dowie will check on the fitness of on-loan defender Gonzalo Sorondo - who missed Palace's 3-1 loss at Fulham with a hamstring strain.
Both Nicola Ventola and Tommy Black are sidelined with long-term injuries, but Joonas Kolkka could overcome his rib injury to feature.
Emmerson Boyce could also be recalled in place of Danny Butterfield.
Aston Villa captain Olof Mellberg is suspended and leaves manager David O'Leary with few options.
Mark Delaney will return to partner youngster Liam Ridgewell, with Martin Laursen still sidelined.
Carlton Cole and Thomas Hitzlsperger are still out, meaning Luke Moore may get another chance to partner Juan Pablo Angel in attack.
Skysports.com prediction: 1-1
Injury-plagued Villa should have enough to seal a share of the spoils.
