Danny Butterfield is to see a specialist about his nagging pelvic injury.

The Crystal Palace midfielder has been missing since October with the problem and manager Iain Dowie has decided the player should get it checked out.

The club have been hampered by the loss of Butterfield but hope that his ordeal is almost over.

"Hopefully we are getting towards the end of the problem because we've missed Danny," the Palace boss said.

"He gives us a different option and it's very frustrating because he's hardly kicked a ball for us this year."
