Phillips is reunited with Ian Holloway after moving from Blackpool and Dobbie, who also played under the Palace boss at Bloomfield Road, has joined from Brighton.

Palace will check on skipper Mile Jedinak, who suffered an eye injury from a stray arm against Huddersfield on Wednesday night and may have to play in a mask.

Fellow midfielder Andre Moritz is also a doubt after suffering an ankle injury in the 1-0 defeat in Yorkshire.

Former Charlton defender Paddy McCarthy, full-back Joel Ward (both groin) and midfielder Owen Garvan (knee) are still out while Kagisho Dikgacoi is on African Nations Cup duty.
