Puncheon in court date on crutches.

Byline: LOUIE SMITH

CRYSTAL Palace captain Jason Puncheon appeared in court on crutches yesterday where he denied a public order offence and assault.

The charges follow an incident at a nightclub where Puncheon, 31, is said to have swung his belt at a group, hitting a doorman on the head with the buckle.

A third charge of possession of an offensive weapon was withdrawn.

The footballer, of Kingswood, Surrey, was hurt in a match against Manchester City on Sunday. He sat with his injured leg on another chair during the proceedings.

He was freed on bail at Guildford magistrates ahead of a trial at Staines magistrates court in June.
