We need this like a hole in the head :rolleyes: Emmerson Boyce has broken his foot in training and will miss the rest of the season,Sorondo has strained his knee ligaments and will also miss games .So that's our best 2 defenders out of action:doh: Of course Aj's come home from the England squad with an ankle injury as well :scared:


PALACE star defender Emmerson Boyce has been ruled out for the rest of the season after breaking his foot.

Boyce, has been one of the Premiership's surprise success stories after putting in some excellent performances for the Eagles, keeping last season's first-choice right-back Danny Butterfield out of the side.

It's a massive blow for manager Iain Dowie who is facing having to reshuffle his pack for the Eagles' next game against Middlesbrough in eight days' time.

Butterfield is still recovering from a groin operation, so utility player Mikele Leigertwood, who has been playing in midfield, is likely to deputise at the back.

Palace's star striker Andy Johnson has withdrawn from the England camp after a scan showed he hadn't recovered fully from an ankle injury.

The 19-goal hitman is having treatment on the injury at Palace and hopes to be fit to face Boro.
