    • 87' David Jones battles with Butterfield in midfield, but Warnock looks to be preparing to take the hat-trick hero off.
    • 86' Danns wins a good header before playing a neat one-two with Derry, and Palace are relentless in pressing forward, looking to add to their tally.
    • 85' Andrew jostles with Henry in midfield as Palace continue to give as good as they get.
    • 83' McCarthy has his hands on his hips in disbelief, and Palace are thriving here as Butterfield is roared on after every touch.
    • 81' Nick Carle is replaced by James Comley as Warnock continues to shuffle his pack with the game won.

    • 71' Selhurst Park is bouncing as Butterfield openly laughs at his perfect evening!
    • 70' Ebanks-Blake is booked for a rash challenge on Carle, and Wolves are utterly shell-shocked!
    • 68' GOAL!!!! UNBELIEVABLE! BUTTERFIELD NETS A SEVEN-MINUTE HAT-TRICK! Palace lead 3-0, and Butterfield, who has previously only scored seven times in 52 appearances, is the hero! Lee flicks the ball on, and Butterfield slides it under Hennessey - it is also a 'perfect' hat-trick!
    • 67' Wolves are stunned as Mick McCarthy holds his head in dismay at his side's appalling defending.
    • 65' GOAL!!! BUTTERFIELD DOUBLES HIS TALLY! The midfielder nets a stunning four-minute brace, and Palace are 2-0 up! The midfielder steals in to slot the ball past Hennessey!
    • 63' Hill concedes a corner at the other end as Wolves look to hit straight back.
    • 61' PALACE TAKE THE LEAD THROUGH BUTTERFIELD! It is nothing more than the hosts deserve, and he reacts sharply to head home the rebound after Hennessey saves point-blank from Carle's header! All from an Ambrose header, and the Championship side are in front!

    • 55' Chris Iwelumo and Ebanks-Blake are warming up vigorously on the touchline for Wolves, as Palace press forward once more.
    • 53' Lee collects the ball superbly down the left for Palace, before Zubar catches Ambrose with a very high challenge.
    • 52' Danns clatters into Berra in the Wolves half, and the visitors will clear upfield now.
    • 51' McCarthy is urging Bia and Foley to support Vokes much better in attack for Wolves, and the pair acknowledge his requests.

    • 49' Ambrose has another free-kick from 25 yards which this time zips past the far post with Hennessey stationary.
    • 48' Bia wins a good header, but Vokes is unable to latch on to the flick-on in behind Lawrence.
    • 47' Ambrose hits the target with a 25-yard free-kick, very similar to the one which he scored from at Molineux, but Hennessey collects.
    • 46' The second half is underway at Selhurst Park, and Wolves will need to significantly improve if they are to progress.
    • 45+4' The half-time whistle goes at Selhurst Park, and Palace deserve to be in front against Wolves, but it remains goalless.
    • 45+3' Foley wriggles away from Derry, but Bia's shot is blocked by Lawrence on the edge of the penalty area.
    • 45+2' Zubar wins a good header, but Butterfield regains possession for the hosts, who continue to see a lot of the ball.
    • 45+1' Hennessey lumps a long ball upfield to Vokes, but the Wolves striker cannot latch on to it under pressure from Hill.
    • 45' There will be four minutes added at the end of this first half, and Ambrose delivers possibly the worst corner ever seen - scuffed along the ground wide of the penalty area!
    • 44' Milijas whips over a stunning delivery from the free-kick, and Vokes wins his glancing header which runs wide of Speroni's far post. Alan Lee finally returns.
    • 43' Palace continue to dominate, despite still only having 10 men on the field with Lee still to reappear.
    • 42' Carle takes the ball down at the back post before dragging a low shot agonisingly close to Hennessey's far post - that was extremely close!
    • 41' Hill clatters Craddock with a flailing elbow, and this is getting very niggly indeed at the moment.
    • 40' Danns whips over a devilish delivery from the left wing, and Berra has to make a fine header away for a corner.
    • 39' Danns wins a good header for the hosts in midfield, and Wolves seem almost incapable of stringing three passes together at the moment.
    • 38' Lee is furious once again as Craddock catches the striker with his elbow, and Warnock has to be dragged away by his assistant!
    • 37' McCarthy looks very concerned with his midfield, who are offering virtually nothing at the moment.
    • 36' Lee flicks a high ball on brilliantly into the path of Amrbose, whose shot is blocked before Carle's follow-up is again deflected away by Mancienne.
    • 35' Speroni does superbly to dive at the feet of Bia to smother the loose ball, and the Palace keeper is safe there.
    • 34' Derry barges over Milijas, and Palace feel aggrieved as another decision goes against them, but it was a definite foul.
    • 33' Derry plays a neat ball inside to Butterfield, who miscontrols it under the nose of Stearman.
    • 32' Davis makes a good, sprawling header to his right as Wolves attack through Foley down the wing.
    • 31' Lee is furious with referee Mason after being barged over by Craddock, and Warnock is as angry as the striker after he is shown the yellow card.
    • 30' Henry makes a fine challenge to end Hill's run abruptly, and the Wolves skipper is a very commanding presence in midfield.
    • 29' McCarthy barks at his players from the touchline in exasperated fashion as another pass is misplaced from midfield.
    • 28' Bia hammers a wild shot over the bar from the edge of the box, and that was very speculative as his team-mates express their disappointment.
    • 27' Derry trips Mancienne, and that was pretty cynical as the Palace skipper is booked for that infringement.
    • 26' Ambrose is all action as he charges down the left and whips over a devilish delivery which evades everyone in the box.
    • 25' Hennessey is sharply off his line to collect a testing through ball from Milijas, and Vokes was not far off.
    • 24' Butterfield is decked by Stearman, but it was a fair-minded challenge, albeit a little clumsy as the set-piece is about to be whipped in.
    • 23' Danns hauls down Foley as Palace continue to stifle the room afforded to the Wolves midfield.
    • 22' Derry wins a corner for Palace with another strong run down the right, and Palace are creating by far the better openings so far.
    • 21' Mancienne hooks the ball over the head of Ambrose as the Palace midfielder rushes on in an attempt to latch on to a long ball from Lawrence.
    • 20' Butterfield challenges with Milijas in midfield, and the play is very scrappy as both sides look to establish themselves.
    • 19' Speroni hammers a long ball up to Lee, who is causing havoc in the air with his imposing presence in attack.
    • 18' Clyne whips over a testing delivery which Ambrose volleys narrowly wide from the edge of the penalty area, and that was a very difficult attempt!
    • 17' Mancienne protests with the referee after he is penalised for an infringement on Ambrose.
    • 16' Hennessey thumps the ball up to Bia, who jumps with Lawrence as Wolves look to take the direct approach.
    • 15' Vokes goes down under a challenge from Derry, and the play continues to be scrappy as Mancienne dinks over the set-piece.
    • 14' Lee barges Craddock off the ball in the Wolves half, and Hennessey can now lump a long ball upfield.
    • 13' Vokes attempts to flick the ball past Davis down the byline, but Hill joins in to deny the Wolves forward.
    • 12' Derry and Danns combine for Palace on halfway, before Ambrose drives a wild shot miles over the bar from the edge of the penalty area.
    • 11' A period of pinball ensues on halfway as neither side is able to get the ball down and enjoy some meaningful possession.
    • 9' Hill clears away under pressure from Vokes, and the forward is putting himself about very effectively early on.
    • 8' Vokes almost steals in as Davis dallies on the ball and is very nearly punished by the Wolves forward, who takes the ball wide as the chance goes begging.
    • 7' Palace have started in a very aggressive manner as Warnock urges his players forward from the touchline.
    • 6' Butterfield twists and turns before Derry supports him down the right and a cross is delivered over to Lee, who wins a corner.
    • 5' Craddock sweeps up very effectively after Danns wins the ball and flicks it on towards Lee.
    • 4' It is all Palace in this opening period, and Wolves are kept pushed back firmly inside their half.
    • 3' Alan Lee puts himself about in attack for Palace, while Ambrose charges around out on the right.
    • 2' It is far from a full house at Selhurst Park, but a fair noise is ringing around the ground as we have a delay due to balloons on the field.
    • 1' Palace kick us off in this first half, and the Wolves fans have travelled in their numbers.
    • - We are about to get underway at Selhurst Park, and a fervent atmosphere is being generated.
    • - The teams are in at Selhurst Park, and the referee for this evening's clash is Lee Mason.
    • - Crystal Palace: Speroni, Lawrence, Hill, Davis, Clyne, Butterfield, Danns, Derry, Carle, Ambrose, Lee. Subs: Manns, Scannell, Andrew, Djilali, Comley, Wynter
    • - Wolverhampton: Hennessey, Stearman, Craddock, Berra, Zubar, Foley, Mancienne, Henry, Milijas, Mujangi Bia, Vokes. Subs: Hahnemann, Ebanks-Blake, Surman, David Jones, Halford, Iwelumo, Castillo
    • - But midfielder Adlene Guedioura, also on loan from Charleroi, is ineligible as he was not signed before the original tie. Goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is poised to be given an outing with strikers Chris Iwelumo, Sam Vokes and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake also pushing for starting roles. Striker Kevin Doyle will have a late check on his fitness after taking a blow to his calf and Achilles against Hull.
    • - Boss Neil Warnock will be forced into at least one change as left-back Lee Hills is cup-tied. Austria international Johnny Ertl missed out at the weekend with a hamstring injury and will return to the back four if he is fit, otherwise veteran Matt Lawrence could step in. Defender Claude Davis (neck) and winger Sean Scannell (hamstring) recovered from injuries to face Posh and should be involved again. Centre-half Paddy McCarthy remains a long-term absentee following last year's shoulder operation.
    • - Danny Butterfield could once again be thrust into attack when Crystal Palace host Wolves in their FA Cup replay. The right-back played alongside Alan Lee in attack and put in a fine performance during Saturday's 2-0 win over Peterborough.
    • - New Wolves signing Geoffrey Mujangi Bia expected to make his first start at crisis-club Crystal Palace. Wolves winger Geoffrey Mujangi Bia will make his first start for the club at Selhurst Park. Belgium international Bia, who joined Wolves on loan from Charleroi last month, replaces Matt Jarvis who picked up a calf problem during last weekend's 2-2 draw at Hull. Bia made his Premier League debut as a sub in the 2-2 draw with Hull City. View the team news for this match in full here
    • - Wolves boss McCarthy has been lambasted in certain quarters for his treatment of matches unrelated to his side's quest for Premier League survival - what team will he pick this evening? Kevinelson68 urges him to put the reserves out in view of their crucial run of upcoming fixtures.
    • - The two teams drew 2-2 at Molineux as Palace twice took the lead (through Lee and Ambrose), only for Mick McCarthy's side to level on each occasion (courtesy of Jones and Zubar).
    • - Championship side Crystal Palace host Wolves at Selhurst Park as Eagles boss Neil Warnock looks to claim a Premier League scalp in their fourth-round replay.
