Shearer a major doubt for Palace encounter

Last updated : 22 November 2004 By Craig Hope (website editor)

Alan Shearer is a major doubt ahead of tomorrow’s game with Crystal Palace.
Shearer has suffered a thigh strain in training paving the way for a Kluivert/Bellamy pairing in attack that was last seen at
Villa Park in Sir Bobby’s final game in charge.

We lost 4-2 on that day, let us hope that tomorrow’s game produces a rather different outcome while a possible reverse would condemn us to five consecutive defeats.
