Crystal Palace v Leeds:Team News

James Vaughan and Alex Marrow could both return to the Crystal Palace squad after ankle problems.
Winger Sean Scannell will again be missing as he sits out the second game of a three-match ban.
Leeds United forward Luciano Becchio, who missed Friday's goalless draw with Reading because of a hamstring strain, remains a doubt.The Yorkshire side are already without winger Lloyd Sam, who is sidelined with a knee injury.
Without a win in four matches and with only one victory from seven, Leeds have dropped out of the play-off places and their away form is a concern.
They remain the Championship's top scorers, but have suffered three consecutive away defeats and another loss on Monday would seriously dent their bid to get back into the top six.
Crystal Palace are involved in a battle at the opposite end of the table and if they win that battle, a major factor will be their excellent home form.
But their recent 2-1 defeat against fellow strugglers Scunthorpe - Palace's first loss in 14 home matches - means they are still in trouble. The Eagles have won only one of their last seven games.
