Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis hopes to have a fully fit squad to choose from when his side host Aston Villa on Saturday.

Dwight Gayle returned from an ankle injury to score five goals in an Under-21s fixture against Brentford on Wednesday night but the young striker is not considered ready to start.

The Eagles have no other major injury concerns ahead of the contest at Selhurst Park as Pulis' side look to take another step closer to Barclays Premier League survival.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has a trio of key players available again for Saturday's Premier League clash at Crystal Palace.

Striker Gabby Agbonlahor and midfielders Fabian Delph and Karim El Ahmadi missed last weekend's 2-1 defeat at home to Fulham either through illness or injury, but all have trained this week and should return to the starting line-up.

Lambert remains without six long term-injured in Christian Benteke, Libor Kozak, Charles N'Zogbia, Jores Okore, Nicklas Helenius and Gary Gardner.

Crystal Palace squad: Speroni, Hennessey, Gabbidon, McCarthy, Dann, Mariappa, Ward, Delaney, Ledley, Bannan, O'Keefe, Dikgacoi, Bolasie, Jedinak, Guedioura, Puncheon, Ince, Thomas, Jerome, Chamakh, Murray, Gayle.

Aston Villa squad: Guzan, Steer, Clark, Baker, Luna, Vlaar, Bennett, Lowton, Bertrand, Bacuna, Albrighton, El Ahmadi, Westwood, Delph, Sylla, Tonev, Holt, Weimann, Agbonlahor.
