Sports Mole looks ahead to the Monday night Premier League London derby between two struggling sides - Crystal Palace and Fulham.
Two struggling London clubs face off in the Premier League on Monday as second-from-bottom Crystal Palace welcome Fulham to Selhurst Park looking to end a run of four straight defeats.
Eagles boss Ian Holloway is sweating on the fitness of Kagisho Dikgacoi and Danny Gabbidon, with Stuart O'Keefe and Adrian Mariappa likely to fill in for the duo.
In attack, Holloway has to choose two of Dwight Gayle, Jimmy Kebe and Jason Puncheon to partner main striker Marouane Chamakh.
Fulham manager Martin Jol is likely to start Dimitar Berbatov up front despite Darren Bent's match-winner against Stoke.
Scott Parker should return in the centre of midfield after a calf problem, while in defence Aaron Hughes is pushing for a start after resuming full training.
These two sides last met back on New Year's Day 2005 when Fulham came out on top 3-1, with Andy Cole scoring a brace for the Cottagers.
Possible starting lineups
Palace: Speroni; Ward, Mariappa, Delaney, Moxey; O'Keefe, Campana, Jedinak; Gayle, Chamakh, Kebe
Fulham: Stockdale; Riether, Hughes, Hangeland, Amorebieta; Kasami, Parker, Sidwell, Duff; Ruiz, Berbatov
Sports Mole says: 1-3
