Crystal Palace have sold out their ticket allocation for the clash against Albion at the Amex on December 4.

The number of seats released to the Seagulls' rivals has increased slightly to just under 2,500 compared to last season's Premier League fixture, which ended 0-0.

The reciprocal arrangement means more Albion fans will also have access to tickets for the return meeting at Selhurst Park later in the season.

The league game between the teams at the Amex a year ago was marred by trouble outside the stadium.

Two stewards were taken to hospital after some Palace fans without tickets stormed a turnstile. The resulting chaos led to some supporters with tickets being denied entry.

Sussex Police, criticised for its handling of the match, apologised for falsely claiming a number of Palace fans were carrying weapons.

Meanwhile, Albion have almost sold out their allocation for Saturday's game at Cardiff.

They will have just over 2,500 fans in Wales for the 12.30pm kick-off live on Sky Sports, the next-highest away following this season after Manchester City.
