Sports Mole previews Crystal Palace's Premier League match against Hull City.

Crystal Palace will be looking to pull further away from the relegation zone when they face Hull City in the Premier League.

Tony Pulis's men are 16th, two points above West Ham United, who currently occupy the 18th place.

A win would see Palace move level on points with their opponents, who are just outside the top half.

Jason Puncheon's goal was enough for the home side to beat Stoke City last time out in the league and they overcame Hull 1-0 when they travelled to the KC Stadium in November.

However, they will be without Jonathan Parr, who picked up an injury in the FA Cup defeat to Wigan Athletic, while Kagisho Dikgacoi and Jerome Thomas could return. Cameron Jerome is also likely to start in attack.

Meanwhile, the Tigers have failed to win at Selhurst Park since 1986 and lost 1-0 to Norwich City last weekend.

Steve Bruce's men have picked up just four points from their last six matches and need a win to consolidate their position in mid-table.

Tom Huddlestone could return after serving his suspension for a red card against Norwich, but James Chester and Sone Aluko are ruled out.

Robbie Brady is in line to make his first league start since December.
