Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew will make a late decision on Mile Jedinak’s fitness ahead of Saturday’s crunch game at home to league leaders Leicester.

Jedinak has a sore back and will be assessed but Connor Wickham is still out with an adductor injury and not expected to return until after the international break.

James McArthur (ankle) and Marouane Chamakh (hip) will also miss the match at Selhurst Park as Palace look for their first league win since December.

Provisional squad: Hennessey, McCarthy, Speroni, Ward, Kelly, Dann, Delaney, Hangeland, Mariappa, Souare, Lee, Jedinak, Ledley, Zaha, Puncheon, Bolasie, Cabaye, Mutch, Campbell, Adebayor, Sako, Gayle.
