Crystal Palace are facing a striker shortage for Week 28 as they look to keep up their fine form at Southampton.
Palace will be full of confidence having comfortably brushed West Ham aside but the Eagles are suffering from a striker shortage as Glenn Murray serves a one game ban joining injured trio Marouane Chamakh, Yaya Sanogo and Fraizer Campbell [all hamstring] on the sidelines. Dwight Gayle is likely to be the lone frontman in a 4-5-1 with Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie supporting but Shola Ameobi is available should Pardew prefer a 4-4-2 formation. Jordan Mutch [thigh] will miss out after limping off at the Boleyn Ground while his replacement James McArthur should retain his place. Mile Jedinak has until 6pm [GMT] on Tuesday to respond to an FA charge of violent conduct following his alleged elbow on Diafra Sakho. Mar 3 - 8:38 AM

Crystal Palace won their third straight match on the road in convincing style as Glenn Murray played a key role in the 1-3 victory over West Ham United.

For the very few out there that had Murray playing for their fantasy teams, take a bow. Alan Pardew is king of the road right now, ringing in five changes and looking right on every call, especially the inclusion of Murray. After the game looked to be heading to half without a goal, Murray took a shot that went on target and was redirected by Aaron Cresswell who blocked Adrian's view and the ball trickled in. Scott Dann would put the Eagles up two when he headed in a Jason Puncheon corner at the far post early in the second half. Murray then sealed the points with a more convincing goal, timing a diving header off a Puncheon free kick for his brace. Palace's attacking options are looking better with each passing week, though Puncheon probably is more dependable for an uninterrupted run in the side than Murray is.

Glenn Murray scored one in stoppage time and had a second hit the post as Crystal Palace fell just short of reversing a 2-0 Arsenal lead.

A 2-0 result was always going to flatter Arsenal who managed to absorb a lot of pressure while failing to hit their best going forward. Alan Pardew's men nearly netted a great point but Glenn Murray's 94th minute header hit the post and into David Ospina's gut for the final significant act of the day.

Crystal Palace's Glenn Murray has made a move to Reading on loan.

Murray is out of favour at Crystal Palace as they've signed Kevin Doyle and won't be in the Premier League until January, which is when Doyle's loan ends. We will update his status in January if he somehow becomes fantasy relevant, but that's very unlikely.

Glenn Murray scored again but Crystal Palace were defeated 3-2 by Brentford in an entertaining friendly.

Palace had initially gone 2-0 behind before fighting back thanks to goals from Murray and Marouane Chamakh. As we've mentioned here previously, Murray's return to full fitness after a full pre-season is a huge boost for the Eagles, as the striker missed the majority of the last season after suffering a cruciate ligament injury. Brentford ended up winning this one thanks to a late goal, but it was a good work out for a strong Palace side.

Glenn Murray and Jake Gray were on target as Crystal Palace began their US tour with a 2-2 stalemate against Columbus Crew.

Murray continued his solid start to pre-season with his third goal in two games, as Palace were held to a draw in Ohio. The striker missed the majority of the Eagles' return to the Premier League last season as he recovered from a cruciate ligament injury, but he's looking sharp as Tony Pulis continued to ease him back in with another 45 minutes of action. As the club's designated penalty taker, Murray could prove a handy budget option for the Yahoo fantasy game, priced at less than £3million.

Crystal Palace kicked off their pre-season campaign with a stunning 13-1 victory against GAK Graz in Austria on Wednesday evening.

Not a bad start to pre-season for the Eagles. GAK Graz are a part-time side working their way up the Austrian football pyramid, but this is still an impressive result. Stephen Dobbie scored four goals, with Glenn Murray, Joe Ledley and Jonny Williams grabbing a brace each. Yannick Bolasie, Jerome Thomas and Marouane Chamakh were also on target for the visitors. Murray's display will be the most pleasing to Tony Pulis, and with a full pre-season behind him the striker will be looking to have a proper crack at the Premier League after a cruciate knee injury ruled him out for the majority of the last campaign.

Glenn Murray scored his first ever Premier League goal in dramatic fashion, converting a spot kick late on to level the match with Swansea City and earning Crystal Palace a point on the road in a 1-1 final.

Referee Mike Dean judged that Chico Flores brought Murray down inside the box to warrant the penalty, but upon review, it appeared the foul was committed before Murray entered the area. Dean sent Flores off, and Murray was able to convert. Palace were unable to go ahead with the man advantage in the final 10 minutes, but should feel satisfied with the result considering the questionable call and the fact that Swansea dominated possession for the majority of the contest. Yannick Bolasie was heavily involved and looks an interesting prospect for the truncated schedule in week 29.

Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis admits he will not rush striker Glenn Murray back into the starting line-up.

Murray was Palace's star man, scoring 31 goals for the club in their promotion season before rupturing his cruciate ligament in the play-offs, forcing him out of action for nine months. The striker is finally back in full training and made his comeback as a substitute in the 3-1 Premier League win over West Brom in Week 25. Murray could still have a key part to play in the final months of the Eagles' relegation battle and he remains the club's designated penalty taker.

Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray is expected to return to action next month after a long spell out with a serious knee injury.

Murray scored 31 goals for the club in their promotion season before rupturing his cruciate ligament in the play-offs, forcing him out of action for nine months. Manager Tony Pulis revealed the striker is almost ready to return to full training, which is great news for the player and club, and it will be interesting to see what role Murray will play in the final months of Palace's relegation battle.

Kevin Phillips has signed a one year contract with Crystal Palace.

Despite his age (40 years old this week), there was very little harm in awarding Kevin Phillips a one-year deal. His Premier League experience, ability to grab a goal from the bench and coolness from the spot cannot be underestimated, as he showed by hitting the winning penalty in the Play-Off final against Watford. He'll provide back-up to newly purchased Dwight Gayle and Glenn Murray, once the latter returns from his knee injury. Ian Holloway will still be looking to add one more striker to the squad, with Peter Odemwingie linked.

Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of in-demand striker Dwight Gayle.

The fee is rumoured to be £4.5million, which is a significant investment by Palace, and Gayle has signed on a four-year deal. The 22-year-old scored 13 goals in 29 matches for Peterborough United in the Championship last season. He'll bring some of the pace lost when Wilfred Zaha left for Old Trafford and will provide an option in the absence of the injured Glenn Murray.

Dwight Gayle has been tipped to join Crystal Palace from Peterborough United for £6m this week.

With last season's goal-scoring sensation Glenn Murray out for a prolonged period with a knee injury and Wilfried Zaha gone to Manchester United it will be critical for Palace to add to their attack. In Gayle they potentially add part of the mix. The 22 year-old scored 13 goals in 29 matches for Peterborough United. Not the physical presence that Murray is, Gayle will bring some of the pace lost when Zaha left.
