Pardew Gives Injury Updates

27 February 2015

Alan Pardew admits that he has both good and bad selection headaches going into tomorrow's game against West Ham United.

Palace are looking to remain unbeaten in five successive Premier League away games for the first time, but they will have to do it without a trio of injured strikers with Pardew revealing in his pre-match press conference that Fraizer Campbell, Yaya Sanogo and Marouane Chamakh will all miss the trip to east London.

However with Mile Jedinak and James McArthur recovering from their knocks Pardew has many different options to choose from in the middle of the park as he returns to his former club tomorrow lunchtime.

Ahead of the game, he said: “Fraizer has picked up a hamstring injury to go along with Yaya and Chamakh who will all be missing for this game.

“I think Fraizer is going to be about five to six weeks, Sanogo is a possibility for the QPR game and Chamakh is out for maybe two.

“There's a bit of firepower missing from the team which is a shame at this stage but it won't be too long for the other two guys and hopefully Fraizer will have a speedy recovery and be available again before the end of the season. Everyone else is fit though so we've got plenty of options.

“Mile will be available but we've had some outstanding performances in midfield and there's a bit of competition there, and Jordon Mutch coming in has improved that area.

“He's important in terms of his captaincy and his presence but no-one has a given right to play. I think we've trained well this week and I'm looking forward to it. Both teams need a win so will be focussed towards victory.”
