Crystal Palace chairman Parish delighted for Wickham over comeback

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish says management is delighted with the return of Connor Wickham.

The striker could see more action today against Arsenal.

Parish wrote for today's match programme: "One of the positives to take from the late defeat at Everton was welcoming back Connor Wickham to first-team action since his dreadful injury sustained in November 2016.

"That is an extraordinary length of absence, and it has been a turbulent road back to action for him with a few false starts along the way.

"It is a testament to Connor as a man that he is now back in contention, and everyone involved with the club has their fingers crossed that he continues to build up his strength and match fitness to give Roy more options."
