“It’s definitely a problem and you know, difficult for the player and difficult for the club because you want everybody available to you when you’re playing Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday in the Championship. It’s a tough league to get out of and to lose a player of his ability it’s sad and it’s stop-start for the player and so it’s disappointing for the player as well. But unfortunately, injuries are part and parcel of the game of football,” Palmer told This is Futbol.
