Jason Puncheon has paid tribute to the Crystal Palace medical team as he continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.
The Eagles midfielder has been sidelined since New Years Eve when he cynically hacked down Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne ending his own season. Manager Roy Hodgson confirmed at the time that Puncheon had ruptured his posterior cruciate ligament, an injury which he initially thought would keep him out until September. However, Puncheon has been making excellent progress in recent weeks and writing in his programme notes ahead of the Brighton game he revealed: "I am pleased to report that I have been able to get out on the training pitch and do some running. Without putting pressure on myself, I am hoping that in 2-4 weeks I will be [able] to train with the rest of the squad. I would like to thank Chris Morgan, Ed Richmond, Chris Petrie and all the medical team who have been fantastic to get me back to this stage, and I appreciate all their efforts in helping with my rehabilitation."
