Crystal Palace midfielder Adlene Guedioura has been ruled out for up to six weeks through injury.

The former Nottingham Forest player punctured his lung and broke two ribs after colliding with West Brom keeper Boaz Myhill on Saturday.

He was stretchered off during the first half of the 2-0 defeat after receiving lengthy treatment and joins the big list of players on the Palace treatment table.

"It doesn't look good for him he's fractured two ribs and it's damaged his lung as well," caretaker manager Keith Millen said.

"For cracked ribs, you're looking at around at least six weeks out. The trouble with cracked ribs is that you can't exercise and you can't get your heart and lungs going.

"Some injuries, you can keep your cardiovascular fitness up, but with this injury you can't do anything.

"In four weeks' time, if he can do some exercise and it's not aggravating him, then great, he can."
