Football - No new problems for Poyet

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has a virtually full-strength squad from which to select for Saturday's vital Barclays Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.

PA Sport Report

Central defender Wes Brown and midfielder Craig Gardner both missed the 3-0 FA Cup sixth-round defeat at Hull with knocks, but have since returned to training and are in contention.

Striker Jozy Altidore, defender Valentin Roberge and midfielder El-Hadji Ba sat out at the KC Stadium through illness, but all three have recovered, leaving only goalkeeper Keiren Westwood (shoulder) on the sidelines.
