|Stats: Crystal Palace | Charlton Athletic|
Crystal Palace have added strikers Kevin Phillips and Stephen Dobbie to their ranks ahead of the south London derby against Charlton.
Phillips is reunited with Ian Holloway after moving from Blackpool and Dobbie, who also played under the Palace boss at Bloomfield Road, has joined from Brighton.
Palace will check on skipper Mile Jedinak, who suffered an eye injury from a stray arm against Huddersfield on Wednesday night and may have to play in a mask.
Fellow midfielder Andre Moritz is also a doubt after suffering an ankle injury in the 1-0 defeat in Yorkshire.
Former Charlton defender Paddy McCarthy, full-back Joel Ward (both groin) and midfielder Owen Garvan (knee) are still out while Kagisho Dikgacoi is on African Nations Cup duty.
Leon Cort could return to the Charlton side against his former club.
The defender was on the bench following a spell out with a hamstring injury as the Addicks' three-game winning streak came to an end with a 2-1 defeat by Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.
Striker Ricardo Fuller is also pushing to face his old employers after coming on as a substitute against the Owls.
Winger Danny Green and forward Bradley Wright-Phillips are available after proposed deadline-day moves to Swindon fell through.
Striker Danny Haynes is close to fitness after a hamstring injury and will be assessed but midfielder Andy Hughes is still on the comeback trail after a long-term Achilles problem and is not ready to return.
