CRYSTAL Palace will showcase new signings Fraizer Campbell and Brede Hangleland at Forest Green tomorrow, 3pm.

The Eagles will be led by Ady Pennock's former assistant manager and close friend and house-mate at Stoke City, David Kemp.

Pennock worked alongside Kemp and current Eagles boss Tony Pulis at Stoke as first team coach for six years, before a phone call from Pulis to Forest Green chairman Dale Vince helped the now Rovers boss land the job at The New Lawn eight months ago.

Former Port Vale defender Liam Chilvers, who featured in the second half at Brimscombe on Tuesday isn't included after his partner gave birth yesterday.

Pennock added: "The door isn't closed on Liam but he will be spending time with his partner and new baby and isn't involved against Palace."

Pennock is still hoping to add a centre-back to his squad with just over a week to the Conference opener at Southport.

"I am still trying to get someone in and hope to have some news soon."

Striker Magno Vieria has joined Conference outfit Nuneaton on a one-month loan deal.

Crystal Palace: Lewis Price, Chris Kettings, Peter Ramage, Paddy McCarthy, Brede Hangeland, Jerome Binnom-Williams, Adlene Guedioura, Stuart O’Keefe, Barry Bannan, Jerome Thomas, Fraizer Campbell, Dwight Gayle, Michael Chambers, Ghassimu Sow, Connor Dymond, Sullay Kaikai, Reise Allassani, Owen Garvan.
