Rafa Benitez is cautiously optimistic that the injury suffered by Ciaran Clark on Sunday is not serious.
Newcastle earned a hard-fought draw at Selhurst Park with a back to wall second half performance to keep the Geordies one-point above the drop zone. Having deservedly gone in at the break a goal up, thanks to a neat Mo Diame finish and some slack Palace defending, the Eagles started the second half with a real statement of intent and were it not for some resolute defending the home side could’ve easily won. The Palace waves of attack kept coming and in the 89th minute Wilfried Zaha checked – putting it on a plate for Christian Benteke – but from nowhere Clark came across to block his effort which left the centre-back requiring treatment. "He took a blow to the knee, but I think it's too early for me to say. We have to wait and see, but I don't see it as a big issue," revealed Benitez.
