The South Africa international missed three consecutive games through injury over the festive period, and the Crystal Palace boss is worried that he has aggravated the problem

Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis fears that midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi has suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury against Norwich City.

16/5 Crystal Palace are 16/5 with William Hill to beat West Brom
The Eagles could only muster a 1-1 draw in Wednesday's clash at Selhurst Park, despite Norwich playing the closing stages with 10 men after Leroy Fer received a red card.

The match saw South African Dikgacoi make a return to action following a hamstring problem, but Pulis admitted he was concerned about the midfielder from the outset.

He picked up a yellow card towards the start of the match and then told Pulis that his hamstring was once again causing him discomfort.

"He was a little bit flat I thought during the first half," he said.

"Then when he got booked early on, that was a concern for me. He said he felt it a little bit, so we just made the change."

The manager gave no indication as to when the 29-year-old would be available once again, but he is doubtful for Saturday's trip to West Brom in the FA Cup.
