CRYSTAL Palace midfielder Joe Ledley has admitted he's unable to train every day due to an injury he's had to deal with in recent months.
The Wales international is managing the problem well with the club's physiotherapists but that is only due to plenty of rest and not training regularly.
Ledley has started the last two games against Stoke City and Tottenham Hotspur but missed the midweek game against Aston Villa recently after the injury flared up following the 1-1 draw at Swansea City.
The problem really came to light at the start of the season against West Ham in the warm-up and he was out of action for three weeks.
"It's a little bit of a pelvis sort of thing, going into the groin area," Ledley told the Advertiser.
"It's just about managing it over the next couple of days and not training every day and giving it a rest to calm it down and then going again.
"I just don't think I need to train every single day, it's just more rest with myself. It is inflamed so the best thing to do is rest and make sure it looks after itself.
"We have managed it brilliantly and I've been fit for games."
