Sako And Wickham Return

16 September 2016


Alan Pardew had mainly good news on the injury front ahead of Palace's game against Stoke City on Sunday, but admitted that Yohan Cabaye was still a doubt for the clash at Selhurst Park.

"I think Sako and Wickham will make the game. Yohan's touch and go," he said during his pre-match press conference. "We're getting there. We've got three games next week and I'd like to think I'll have a chance to use our whole squad and have a look at a few."

The manager also provided an update on Pape Souare, following the left-back's surgery, saying: "Hopefully tomorrow (he'll be out of hospital). Obviously it was a terrible accident and we owe a huge debt to - and would like to go on record as thanking - the London Air Ambulance and the terrific surgeons that he's had to get him pieced together.

"He's in decent spirits considering and obviously the players and myself and the team have been with him, in particular our doctor, who has done a super job just keeping his spirits up. We think he'll make a full recovery."
