Damien Delaney made his first appearance for Crystal Palace in more than a month, starting at centre-back in the League Cup on Wednesday in a 5-1 loss to Manchester City.
Delaney looks to have regained his starting spot after Brede Hangeland nervously filled in over the past month. Crystal Palace could also be boosted by the return of Joel Ward, who came on as a second-half substitute in the League Cup. With Manchester United looming and some doubts in midfield, expect Crystal Palace to take a more defensive approach to the weekend. Oct 29 - 7:39 AM

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew confirmed defender Damien Delaney will be fit to face West Ham in Week 9.

Pardew also confirmed bit players Mile Jedinak, Jordon Mutch and Lee Chung-Yong have also returned from their respective injuries. The return of Delaney gives Pardew his preferred centre-half pairing with Scott Dann, with Brede Hangeland likely making way after filling in valiantly at age 34. But Delaney's first test, if given the start, will come against a West Ham side that has scored 14 goals in its last six Premier League matches.

Damien Delaney is one of many injury issues for Crystal Palace.

Palace will be without him and Mile Jedinak while also missing Connor Wickham and Joel Ward. Delaney may or may not be fit after the international break so you should check back for his status before week nine.

Damien Delaney will be suspended for one game after picking up a red card in Week 8.

Delaney was sent off for two yellow card offences towards the end of the first half of Palace's defeat against Chelsea, and will miss the league game against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday 25 October. Delaney's absence will likely mean a start for Adrian Mariappa alongside Brede Hangeland, unless Scott Dann can recover from the injury which kept him out of the Chelsea match.

Crystal Palace defender Damien Delaney has expressed his delight at penning a contract extension at Selhurst Park.

The agreement will keep 32-year-old Delaney with Palace until the summer of 2015, and is just reward for a player who can hold his head up high despite the generally poor performances from the Eagles defence. He should continue to start the majority of Premier League games, but he's not somebody you need to consider for your fantasy team.
