Team News: Ricky van Wolfswinkel misses out for Norwich City

Ricky van Wolfswinkel is passed unfit for Norwich City's clash with Crystal Palace.

Norwich City are without the services of striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel for today's relegation clash with Crystal Palace.

The Dutchman has been building up his match fitness following a toe injury, but has been left out of the squad for this afternoon's fixture.

Johan Elmander and Gary Hooper will lead the Canaries' attack in Van Wolfswinkel's continued absence, while Jonny Howson and Leroy Fer will operate in central midfield roles.

Palace manager Tony Pulis, who has no fresh injury concerns ahead of his first match in charge, has opted for a front pairing of Marouane Chamakh and Cameron Jerome.

Norwich: Ruddy; Martin, R Bennett, Bassong, Olsson; Fer, Howson, Redmond, Hoolahan, Elmander, Hooper

Palace: Speroni, Ward, Gabbidon, Delaney, Moxey, Jedinak, Dikgacoi, Bannan, Puncheon, Chamakh, Jerome
