Having been a mainstay of the Palace side for so many years, it has been strange to watch the Eagles go throughout 2018 without Scott Dann as part of their backline. Having been robbed of nearly a year of his career through injury, he talks through the recovery process that has him tantalisingly close to a first-team return.
In a relatively short space of time, Scott Dann has already achieved plenty at Palace. After representing the club for the 100th time last month at Southampton, he reflects on his time in south London as he continues to go from strength to strength in red and blue.
Sometimes it seems as though the script is already written before a game kicks off, so it had to be Scott Dann who would grab Palace’s winner against Liverpool – the club he supported as a boy back in the city he grew up in. His career meanwhile has been far from predictable, and here he reflects on a decade that has seen him go from non-league obscurity to Premier League matchwinner.
