Several Crystal Palace supporters have been reacting to an injury update regarding Nathan Ferguson on social media.
Palace signed the defender last summer on a free transfer from West Brom, but the 20-year-old is yet to feature for the Eagles under Roy Hodgson. He has been absent through knee and thigh issues, and it appears as if he has suffered a fresh injury during the recent international break.
Hodgson revealed on Friday that Ferguson had suffered the setback while training with the club’s under-23 side. The centre-back is now recovering from the latest knock, with the manager waiting to see when he is given the green light for the youngster to return to training.

Palace fans react
Journalist Sam Smith shared the injury update regarding Ferguson on social media late on Friday evening which, as to be expected, received plenty of attention.
Here is what some Palace fans had to say in reply, with one describing the news as ‘troubling’ for the Eagles.
“I’m getting worried now”
“Seems ludicrous signing him in the first place tbh.”
“This really bad, sad and troubling news. Feel for NF. Hope we’ve not got another Jack Hunt on our hands.”
“can just tell we’re never going to see him in a Palace shirt”
“Surely not another Wickham!!!”
