Crystal Palace vs Huddersfield Town

SIMON GRAYSON takes his Huddersfield Town side to Selhurst Park, promising some 'Surprising Changes'.

The Terriers boss is looking to mastermind a first win in 7 at the expense of high flying Palace.

Vital Quotes: Simon Grayson

"They are an exciting team who have plenty of pace and power. They have got the hottest property in the npower Championship in Wilfried Zaha who everyone is keeping an eye on; also, Glenn Murray is on fire. Ian (Holloway) has just carried on from where Dougie (Freedman) left things; they were playing attractive football then and he has just kept them ticking over. Saying that, they have only won one in four and we will go there in good spirits.

"Our full-backs need to put in a very good performance on the weekend because their wingers are both excellent footballers. Each defender needs to win his personal battle against the Palace attackers; if they do that then we will have a very good chance."

Crystal Palace Team News:

Mile Jedinak returns from suspension.

Jonny Williams likely to miss out after returning from a groin injury.

Player to watch: Wilfred Zaha

The hottest property outside the football league, the full backs will have to be on their best defensive game today

Sean Scannell is hoping for a start against his ex-employers.

Vaughan & Beckford expected to start together.

He really does make Town tick up top, but he does need the service, Town will need him to be on top of his game today.
