CRYSTAL Palace defender Dean Moxey may feature against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday following a scan on his hamstring. The left-back was replaced by Adrian Mariappa after 25 minutes against Cardiff City last weekend. The former Exeter City man had a scan on Monday to assess the damage, but thankfully it's not a long-term worry for the Eagles. "It's not too bad, the hamstring," Keith Millen told the Advertiser. "We did the right thing bringing him off last Saturday. "There is minimal damage, which is good. We won't risk it but it's not torn, not a long-term thing. "The worst case is he'll miss this weekend, but he has got a chance. We just need to see how he is." If Moxey does miss out, he'll certainly be available for the game against Newcastle United on Saturday, December 21. Joel Ward may switch to left-back against Jose Mourinho's men, allowing Adrian Mariappa to come in on the right side of the defence. However, Tony Pulis does have a fully fit Jonathan Parr available to come in at left-back too.
