Into The Eagles Nest

Wolverhampton Wanderers travel to Crystal Palace looking to cement their place in the play off positions. Palace will be playing for pride

Vital Quotes: Mick McCarthy

'It won't just be a matter of holding our nerve on Saturday but until May 6. It will go to the wire.'

Crystal Palace Team News:

Peter Taylor could call on the services of Ben Watson and winger Jobi McAnuff both returning from injury, but it looks like bad news for Dougie Freedman and Darren Ward, both missing from training this week.

Player to watch: Leon Cort

The brother of Wlves striker Carl is haveing an outstanding season, and besides being a tower of defensive strength, is also scoring his fair share of goals

Wolves Team News:

Jan Budtz looks set to continue in goal with Matt Murray still to fully recover from injury.

Jackie McNamara and Michael Kightly should both recover from minor niggles in time for Saturday.

Player to watch: Jay Bothroyd

Can big Jay raise himself for another big performance?

Match Facts & Stats

Palace go into the match on the back of a won three lost 2 record, better than Wolves lost 3 wone 1 drawn one, that includes a seasons worst 6-0 home defeat, with the corresponding fixture from January ended in a 1-1 draw.

Historically, Wolves have the edge over Palace with 22 wins to Palace 16, and although Palace will beplaying for little more than pride, a lively encounter should be in store.

Ref Watch:

Mike Thorpe showed a total of one hundred and eleven yellow cards and five red cards last season, and is no stranger to controversy. Irratic may be the best description of his performances this season so far, with home and away fans feeling begrudged by decisions in equal measure.

Next Fixtures:

Next up it's Birmingham City at hiome.
