Dover take on Crystal Palace on Sunday 4th January, 2015, with kickoff at 13:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 1.

Alan Pardew has a curious start to his Crystal Palace career lined up, with a trip to the south east coast and a game against Dover Athletic. The home side have just replaced former England boss Peter Taylor with club legend and perennial caretaker Andy Hessenthaler following a bad run of form, and this is a low-pressure game for both new men to take stock of their options.

Of course it could be a bad day for the Premier League side, but even if that happens Pardew can blame the timing, so this is really a free crack at his new job before the fun starts for real.
