Crystal Palace received a major injury boost earlier this week when Jeffrey Schlupp returned to training but according to club manager Roy Hodgson, the Ghana international is not fully ready for action just yet.
“Schlupp and [Martin] Kelly should return [to action] in a week or two, [Joel] Ward and possibly [Mamadou] Sakho," Hodgson said on Friday.
"But the others are long term and we will have to wait until after the international break before we can get them back on the field of play."
Schlupp had been a key feature of Hodgson's set-up since the former England manager replaced Frank de Boer in September.
The 25-year-old has made 19 Premier League appearances, involving 18 starts, so far this season.
He joined The Eagles from Leicester City in January last year.
