Invergordon are waiting to hear if Ken Morrison will be fit for tomorrow’s North Caledonian Cup first-round clash with Inverness Athletic after clattering into a goalpost.
He ran into the right post while challenging for the ball in the 0-0 draw against Halkirk United last week.
Morrison was due to visit a physio last night, and manager Gary Campbell is waiting to hear if he will be available for the cup tie at Recreation Park tomorrow.
“He clattered into the goalpost and was in a bad way afterwards,” said Campbell.
“He is still in a bad way now and we will need to assess how he is after he goes to the physio.
“He hurt his knee, shin and shoulder, he hit the post with the entire side of his body.
“But his knee is the most problematic area and he is still hobbling.”
Invergordon will also be without Brora Rangers manager Steven Mackay and assistant manager Craig Campbell who have returned to the Cattachs for a friendly on Saturday.
Invergordon are seven points ahead in North Caledonian League Division One, but Campbell says the North Caledonian Cup is just as important to them.
“Like everyone else, we want to win every trophy that we’re going for,” he said.
“The North Caledonian Cup is a trophy that we have our eye on. I am not sure how many cup competitions will happen this season as we do not know what lies ahead.
“So it is a tournament that we want to do well in if it is the only cup competition this season. Also it is a welcome break from the league.”
