Goalkeeper crisis

Last updated : 03 April 2002 By Palace Dan
Trevor Francis is set to seek permission from the F.A. to sign a goalkeeper on loan for the remainder of the season, even though the transfer deadline has passed. Francis made the decision following an eye injury sustained by Matt Clarke during the 0 - 0 draw with Birmingham on Monday. With back up keeper Alex Kolinko also injured, Francis is left with the inexperienced Cedric Curasso as the only fit keeper.
