Danny Butterfield is likely to be missing for Crystal Palace for the next month.
Danny Butterfield is likely to be missing from Crystal Palace's promotion push for the next month.
The defender hurt his ankle during Palace's 1-0 win over Coventry City at Selhurst Park last Saturday.
Butterfield landed awkwardly and was replaced by team-mate Ben Watson less than 20 minutes into the game.
He is now expected to be out of Eagles manager Peter Taylor's plans for the next month as he receives treatment on the injury.
The 26-year-old has made eight appearances so far this term and his ankle injury is similar to the one suffered by Palace colleague Tom Soares.
