FREEDMAN TURNS TO PALACE YOUNGSTERS
Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman will once again rely on the club's youngsters.
Freedman has been forced to raid the club's Academy with Paul McShane (hip) still doubtful and Jonathan Williams, Anthony Gardner (both hamstring) and Mile Jedinak (groin) all out for the season.
Full-back Matt Parsons and midfielders Kyle De Silva and Stuart O'Keefe were drafted in for Monday's 2-0 defeat by leaders Southampton while 16-year-old defender Ryan Inniss was on the bench.
Jonathan Parr could return after he was rested against Saints while fellow midfielders Darren Ambrose and Owen Garvan will hope to play against their former club.
Strikers Glenn Murray and Jermaine Easter are pushing for recalls after dropping out on Monday.
But Ipswich manager Paul Jewell must weigh up whether to hand recalls to the quartet who were rested for Easter Monday's defeat to Leicester.
Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Lee Martin and Michael Chopra were all second-half substitutes in the 2-1 reverse to the Foxes while midfielder Andy Drury was omitted from the matchday 16 altogether.
All four could come back into Jewell's plans at Selhurst Park although Chopra faces a battle to dislodge veteran striker Jason Scotland in attack after he marked his comeback with Town's opener at Portman Road.
The Town boss also faces a dilemma as to whether to give more vital match experience to the likes of Josh Carson and Luke Hyam with the Suffolk club having nothing left to play for but pride this season.
Midfielder Jimmy Bullard misses out due to illness while fringe defender Jaime Peters, who is yet to make a league appearance for Ipswich this season, is sidelined with a thigh injury.
