Hodgson hopes Zaha avoided injury

Confirmed Jonas Lossl to join Huddersfield Town on permanent basis as clause is triggered in loan deal

Goals from James Tomkins and Luka Milivojevic secure Crystal Palace a crucial 2-0 away win over fellow Premier League strugglers Huddersfield Town. "We are getting players back to fitness and our squad is looking like what it was when we were getting results", said Hodgson who added that the three points gained at the John Smith's Stadium were vital even if he and his team were not focused on the league table. Huddersfield is only one point further ahead with seven games remaining. "He got past people and drew fouls and that put us in their part of the field and give our defenders a rest", Hodgson told reporters.

"We know how hard it is, we had to make up eight points to get ourselves out of the relegation zone first time", he said.

"It's important how you manage defeats and a disappointment like today".

The negative for Palace was the sight of Jeffrey Schlupp and star forward Wilfried Zaha being forced off without apparent injuries.

Huddersfield have the spirit and organisation to survive too, on this evidence, but the lack of cutting edge in David Wagner's side - now scoreless in three - is a gnawing concern.

Without Zaha Palace had slipped back into the relegation zone, losing their last four games. "I don't know if it is a definite injury", manager Roy Hodgson said.

Russian Federation has demanded that Britain share samples collected by investigators. He was later sent to the United Kingdom in exchange for captured Russian spies.

"I haven't been given any indication he's picked up any serious injury".

The visitors posed the greater threat in the first half with Zaha lively on the left flank, Christian Benteke dominant down the middle and Andros Townsend inventive on the right.

After Milivojevic's free-kick went just wide, they led on 23 minutes when Tomkins prodded home from close range at the second attempt.

Tomkins nearly netted another on the hour mark but his shot at the far post from a unsafe Andros Townsend corner was hacked off the line by Town's Steve Mounie.

Palace felt, with some justification, that they should have had a penalty in the 55th minute when Benteke went down as Mathias Zanka pulled on his arm but referee Mike Dean waved away the appeals.

Palace started the encounter with impressive energy and they might have taken an early lead when Milivojevic bent his free kick just beyond Jonas Lossl's goal.
