Palace dealt double defensive blow
Crystal Palace will be without Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Martin Kelly when they visit Leicester in the Premier League on Saturday.
Right-back Wan-Bissaka has failed to recover from the hamstring injury that ruled him out of last weekend's FA Cup victory over Doncaster, while Kelly picked up a knock during that game, although boss Roy Hodgson does not feel his problem is too serious.
"We won't have Aaron Wan-Bissaka, he's still recovering from a hamstring problem he's been suffering from," Hodgson told reporters.
"We won't have Martin Kelly, who picked up a slight muscle strain in the game against Doncaster. We don't think it's a long-term injury but unfortunately he hasn't recovered. They're the two injury problems we have."
The duo join veteran goalkeeper Julian Speroni and forward Connor Wickham on the sidelines, as neither of those two are expected to be involved at the King Power Stadium.
However, the news is not all bad for Palace, as talisman Wilfried Zaha is available once again after serving a two-match ban following his sending off against Southampton at the end of January.
