The most nervous I’ve been before a match for a long time.
This is such an important game, not just for the result but also for the confidence of the players and staff, we certainly don’t need to be in a situation where we are seeking to find points to close the gap on any of the preseason relegation favourites.
Come on lads let’s see you step up today.
Crystal Palace 1 Wolves 2. Fingers crossed.

I get sick of these ridiculous kick off times- 2 pm on a Sunday afternoon with shops shutting at 4 meaning its either stay in all day with the game or go out and miss it. The suns out and I cant justify staying in watching a flickering online stream that may or may not stay on. I'll look forward to reading the match reports later but have a suspicion it will be a draw.

Some big changes made by Nuno for today's game - not only in line-up but seemingly in shape too.

Line-up: Patricio, Boly, Coady, Saiss, Doherty, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Jinny, Traore, Jimenez, Jota

Subs: Ruddy, Vallejo, Vinagre, Gibbs-White, Neves, Neto, Cutrone

So Bennett doesn't make the squad again. The line-up graphic shows us playing as 3 - 4 - 3 with Traore, Raul & Jota upfront. In my view it is good to see Nuno ring the changes and perhaps give Traore an opportunity to be an out and out striker an not have to worry about defending. Let's hope he can provide for Raul too

Nervy times indeed. Not surprised that Bennet was left out but Neves too, so should be interesting with Traore, and Jota both in attack. Let's see what overpriced Zaha has to say for himself.

He's moved back to 343 with Traore up front and moved Boly to the right hand side of the defence to accommodate Saiss on the left. Bennett doesn't make the match day squad.

They've not played 343 for nearly 12 months in the PL and players are playing in unfamiliar positions.

I hope Nuno's team know what they are doing. When you're struggling you need typically need players regaining confidence with clear instructions in familiar positions.

The worry is that Moutinho and Dendoncker could be overrun in midfield with the Palace front 3 having a field day against an out of form back 3 in an unfamiliar shape.

I'd take a draw but fear that Zahar could have a big game here.

Zaha starts on their right side so Jonny has to deal with him

Worrying times, do we get four points from these two games and steady the ship or will the clown in tights put in another rare Ronaldo performance next weekend.

All Palace play centred on involving Zaha so far. But Joao has his measure!!

Re: Match Thread: Crystal Palace vs Wolves

First run down right wing by Traore is a good one. Then Jota has a shot but gets a corner

Leander's effort from corner is blocked on the line

Re: Match Thread: Crystal Palace vs Wolves

Some panicky defending from Wolves but ultimately OK. Some of the long distance diagonal passes are being overhit by Wolves so far too

Re: Match Thread: Crystal Palace vs Wolves

Zaha attacks & gets past Jonny easily. Ball cleared and Wolves break well but Traore's pass crosses the by.ine

Saiss' passing is bloody rubbish so far!!
Traore comes in off the line and take s a left footed shot & gets a corner which is well cleared by Cahill. Doc earns another corner on t'other side. Saiss stops Zaha in attack & concedes their first corner

Great play by Wolves in attack and a super save to deny Doc for a goal. Corner comes to Traore whose shot is too high. Promising play for Wolves. Zaha attacks and gets another corner for Palace - easily taken by Rui

Traore did very well to 'escort' Zaha out of the penalty area, and then gives him a shove to show him who is boss!!

Good stop by Guita to keep out Jota's shot after great play between him, Raul & Leander

Hanging on for a 0-0 Cheshire?

Re: Match Thread: Crystal Palace vs Wolves

Doc should have scored! No Cedric Wolves are doing almost all the attacking and have brought out three good saves
