Palace could be counting the cost of their Carling Cup heroics when they host Derby in the league on Friday night.
Boss Dougie Freedman lost full-back Dean Moxey (knee) and winger Sean Scannell (thigh) to injuries picked up during the first half of the shock 2-1 win at Manchester United, while young wideman Wilfried Zaha was limping at the end of a gruelling 120 minutes.
Freedman will utilise his squad with the likes of Mile Jedinak, Jonathan Parr, Owen Garvan and Chris Martin all in the frame to return.
Julian Speroni reclaims his place in goal and Old Trafford scorers Darren Ambrose and Glenn Murray, who were both substitutes, could start.
Jonathan Willians (broken leg), Alex Marrow (ankle) and Lee Hills (knee) are long-term absentees.
Derby manager Nigel Clough could name an unchanged side when the Rams travel to Palace.
Clough saw his team slip to a fifth successive Championship defeat at home to Brighton but he was pleased with the performance against the Seagulls.
Clough made one change on Tuesday night. It was an enforced one with John Brayford, who has only recently returned from a five-week absence due to a torn thigh muscle, left out after complaining of discomfort in the same thigh following the defeat at West Ham.
Jeff Hendrick was recalled in midfield with Paul Green, himself having only just made his comeback from seven months out with a knee injury, filling Brayford’s right-back berth.
