Cardiff City will need to clinch three points from Crystal Palace tomorrow in order to guarantee their spot in the playoff places of the Championship.

Cardiff City are on the edge of the final playoff spot but a win over Crystal Palace would secure the Welsh side's position in sixth place.

Malky Mackay has no fresh injuries ahead of the Championship final day clash at Selhurst Park, which suggests that Kenny Miller and Joe Mason will keep their places up front following Cardiff's 1-1 draw with Leeds United last Saturday.

Meanwhile, Dougie Freedman is likely to call on Lewis Pricewell in goal after regular keeper Julian Speroni suffered a dislocated finger during the side's 2-2 draw with league winners Reading.

Paul McShane may also be forced to make way as the defender struggles with a hamstring injury, with Matthew Parsons taking the centre-back's spot.

Current form:

Crystal Palace: LLLDLD
Cardiff: DWDWWD

Possible lineups:

Crystal Palace: Pricewell; McCarthy, Moxey, McShane, Parr; Ambrose, O'Keefe, Gravan, De Silva, Zaha; Murray

Cardiff: Marshall; McNaughton, Hudson, Taylor, Turner; Whittingham, Gunnarsson, Lawrence, McPhail; Mason, Miller
