Everton striker Vaughan may have wrecked Palace survival hopes
Striker Vaughan was so infuriated by Palace's home defeat to rivals Scunthorpe United that he took his frustration out in the most painful way - breaking his hand when he punched a dressing room wall in anger, says the Mirror.
Now Palace are likely to be without the on-loan Everton hit-man for their crucial run-in, a major loss for manager Dougie Freedman who talked him into the Selhurst switch.
Palace insiders revealed that Vaughan has "suffered a bad one".
Doctors will take a look at the full damage today - but he is not expected to be available for a month.
