Crystal Palace have been dealt an early blow ahead of Sunday’s Hillsborough showdown with the news that midfielder Neil Danns will definitely be suspended.

Danns was shown a red card late on in Palace’s 1-1 draw against West Brom at Selhurst Park on Monday night.

And Eagles boss Paul Hart has revealed that the club won’t be appealing against the decision, meaning he’ll miss the crucial trip to South Yorkshire.

The midfielder was dismissed for violent conduct in a clash with Baggies player Graham Dorrans just seven minutes from time.

Hart told the Croydon Advertiser that ‘there won’t be any appeal’ following the dismissal – meaning Palace will have to do without Danns this weekend.
