West Brom v Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace will be looking to build on their FA Cup win over Tottenham when they visit West Brom in the Premier League on Saturday.

Martin Kelly scored the only goal of the game as the Eagles booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals with a surprise win over in-form Spurs.

Palace were without a win going into that game and will be hoping to build some momentum as they vie for a top-half finish.

They currently sit down in 13th position, four points behind ninth-placed Watford and 10th-placed Stoke City.

Yannick Bolasie is expected to return after a hip injury, but Bakary Sakho and Jason Puncheon are doubts. Pape Souare is suspended.

Albion, meanwhile, fell to a 3-1 defeat to Reading in the FA Cup fifth round, which would have come as a blow following a confidence-boosting win over Everton the previous week.

The Baggies are languishing down in 14th position, level on points with Palace, but behind on goal difference.

Gareth McAuley and Craig Dawson should be available after respective hamstring and ankle injuries, while Jonny Evans is a doubt with a hamstring problem.
