Crystal Palace are sweating over the fitness of Scott Dann after he picked up a suspected hamstring injury against Southampton.
The Eagles crashed out of the EFL Cup when losing 2-0 at St Mary's on Wednesday night, but to make matters worse, Dann could also be facing a spell on the sidelines.
Dann went off with a suspected hamstring injury in the 19th minute and Pardew is now facing an anxious wait to discover the full extent of the damage.
The fact that the Eagles skipper had to be taken off three days after fellow central defender James Tomkins was substituted as a precaution will concern Pardew.
He remains confident Tomkins, who was injured against Stoke on Sunday, will return for Saturday's trip to Sunderland, but is not so sure regards Dann.
"We'll have to wait and see (what his condition) is," Pardew revealed after the game. "It was his hamstring, I think. You can't tell with hamstrings, you really can't."
