Palace defender injury 'not so bad'

Published Add your comment

Crystal Palace have been boosted by the news defender Claude Davis' injury is not as bad as first feared.

The big centre-half needed lengthy treatment before being stretchered off after falling heavily on his neck in an aerial challenge during Saturday's 2-2 FA Cup draw at Wolves.

Palace assistant boss Mick Jones said: "He is a lot better than anticipated. Obviously he took a nasty knock and when you hit the deck like he did there is a lot of weight that goes down on the shoulder and neck.

"He suffered an injury a bit like whiplash, and he is going to see a specialist in London."
