Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has suggested that he will alter his winning formula to accommodate loan signing Jonathan Williams.
The Tractor Boys are the form team in the Championship having won four games in a row to climb up to fifth in the table, but Williams's arrival could mean a change of personnel.
"I think [Williams] was concerned whether he was going to play, with us having won four on the bounce. [Palace boss Neil Warnock] will want him to play for certain but he knows we are on a good run as well.
"Whether he comes in straightaway, we will have to wait and see but Jonny was great for us last season and anyone that thinks he is going to sit on the bench here is going to be mistaken.
"He played behind [Daryl Murphy] last season and did very well. That looks his kind of position and if he brings the same style and flair as he did last year, we will be delighted."
Williams could start for the Tractor Boys tonight as they travel to Sheffield Wednesday and try to win five league games on the spin for the first time since 2003.
