Jonathan Parr says that he has not suffered a serious injury following his collision with Callum McManaman.

Jonathan Parr has admitted that he is relieved that his collision with Wigan Athletic's Callum McManaman has not resulted in a serious injury.

The Crystal Palace defender needed oxygen after he clashed with McManaman in the Eagles' 2-1 FA Cup defeat and was subsequently taken to hospital.

Despite early fears that he could be out for a lengthy period of time, Parr believes that he could be back playing sooner rather than later.

"I am extremely happy that I am 100% well. It was a hard knock, but I am happy I have not suffered a serious injury," he told Sky Sports News.

"I hope to be back playing soon. I might not be able to play this Tuesday, but I am sure I will be ready next weekend."

Palace play Hull City on Tuesday and then face Arsenal on Saturday.
