Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is in contention to face Newcastle on Saturday.

Hennessey missed the Eagles’ 2-1 win over Chelsea last weekend after failing to shake off a knock picked up on international duty with Wales.

Veteran stopper Julian Speroni stepped in and impressed for the relegation-threatened club.

Apart from crocked duo Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham, Palace boss Roy Hodgson says he has a fit squad to choose from.

He said: “We have no further injuries apart from two long-term ones to Benteke and Wickham.

“Wayne Hennessey has recovered.”

Benteke is two weeks into his six-week injury lay-off after suffering a knee problem last month.

And the Belgium striker is still expected to make a first-team return before the busy Christmas period.

Hodgson added: “I don't want to put a timeframe on Christian, but he's feeling very confident and is on schedule.”
