Football League confirm Palace hit by 10 points deduction

The Football League have confirmed Crystal Palace have been deducted 10 points with immediate effect after going into administration.

Eagles chairman Simon Jordan had been attempting to attract new investment into the club, who were late in paying their players twice this season.

But on Tuesday Brendon Guilfoyle, Chris White and John Russell of the P&A Partnership were appointed administrators.

Now Palace find themselves in a relegation battle after falling from ninth to 21st and just three points clear of the bottom three.

A league statement read: "Following receipt of formal confirmation that Crystal Palace Football Club has gone into administration, the Football League can confirm a sporting sanction of 10 points will apply with immediate effect."
