Tomkins set to face Black Cats

James Tomkins is set to be fit for Crystal Palace's trip to Sunderland on Saturday but skipper Scott Dann looks set miss the game.

Palace boss Alan Pardew appeared to be facing a defensive injury headache ahead of the game at the Stadium of Light when Dann limped out of Wednesday's 2-0 EFL Cup defeat at Southampton with what seems to be a hamstring injury.
