Crystal Palace v Huddersfield Town

29th March 2019, 17:15 by Warren Ashurst

Huddersfield could be relegated from the Premier League this weekend if they lose at Crystal Palace and other results go against the Terriers.

Jan Siewert's men are currently 16 points from safety and, should they be defeated at Selhurst Park while Southampton and Burnley win, then their return to the Championship will be confirmed.

The stats don't make good reading for the Yorkshire side as Palace look to complete the league double over the visitors and make it four wins from their last four meetings.

The Eagles are set to make late decisions over the fitness of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Wilfried Zaha, with both players having to withdraw from their international squads last week. Both trained on Friday and so Roy Hodgson is upbeat about the duo's chances of playing.

Bakary Sako could also return to the Palace squad after returning to training this week, which means the hosts' only injury absentee is defender Mamadou Sakho.

The visitors, who have won just one of their last 18 Premier League games, have been boosted by the news that first-team trio Jonathan Hogg, Danny Williams and Christopher Schindler are fit again.

Siewert revealed Adama Diakhaby and Demeaco Duhaney are back on the training ground although Saturday's game will come too soon, as it will for Isaac Mbenza.
