Trio doubtful for Saturday

Last updated : 07 November 2002 By PalaceMAD

First striker Dougie Freedman limped off with a groin injury, then goalkeeper Alex Kolinko suffered the same problem, and midfielder Aki Riihilahti then picked up a calf knock.

Francis said: "It was a pleasing result but this win has not come without a cost. Kolinko and Freedman have both damaged their groin and Riihilahti his calf.

"We will assess them today but it looks as if they will miss the game on Saturday."
