Relief for Palace as Parr escapes serious injury

Jonathan Parr has spoken of his relief after avoiding a serious head injury on the weekend.

The Crystal Palace full-back was involved in a nasty mid-air challenge with Callum McManaman in his side's 2-1 FA Cup fourth round loss to Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

Parr was stretchered from the pitch needing an oxygen mask before being taken to hospital but has since recovered, allaying fears of any severe damage.

"I am extremely happy that I am 100% well," he told Sky Sports.

"It was a hard knock, but I am happy I have not suffered a serious injury.

"I hope to be back playing soon."
