Palace supremo: Glenn Murray set for midday scan on knee

CRYSTAL Palace striker Glenn Murray could be out of action for 6-9 months with what looks like a cruciate injury to his knee, Advertiser Sport understands.

The hitman suffered the blow in the second half of Friday's Championship play-off first leg match against Brighton & Hove Albion and was given extensive treatment by the club's medical staff after being stretchered off.

And Eagles co-chairman Steve Parish told Advertiser Sport this morning: "Glenn is set for an MRI scan at midday. These can take up to an hour-and-a-half, then the doctors need to look at it before making a decision.

"It might not be until tomorrow or later in the week that we'll know for sure. Of course it's a huge blow, injuries are part and parcel of the game."

And Parish admitted the club will look to delve into the transfer market if Murray's injury is long term.

"I think we'd have to (get another striker) but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it," he said.

"It depends how long Glenn is out for - if it is a cruciate, that is around 6-9 months out with no complications."

Jonny Williams suffered cramp in his hamstring during Friday's game but he is set to return to the starting XI for tonight's second leg at the AMEX Stadium, while Palace have no further injury worries to deal with 72 hours on.

Aaron Wilbraham looks set to play up front on his own, but boss Ian Holloway may tinker with his side should he wish to include the experienced Kevin Phillips as another attacking option.
