Ian Holloway could welcome back Owen Garvan when Crystal Palace make the trip to Ipswich.

The midfielder returned to training following a knee injury last week and could feature against his former club.

Paddy McCarthy may also return following a groin injury having benefited from an extended period of rest.

The Eagles haven't featured in the league since April 6 but Alex Nimely (hamstring) is not expected to travel.

Utility man Darcy Blake is also available again after a knee problem as Holloway considers shuffling his pack.

Veteran striker Kevin Phillips could be recalled to boost an attack that hasn't found the net since the beginning of March.

Palace are without a win in their last five league matches, losing three of them, but do remain three points clear of the chasing pack in the play-off places.
