Stewart closing in on return to Ross County first team after hamstring injury


By Andrew Henderson


Ross County striker Ross Stewart is nearing a return to the first team after coming back to training this week.

The Staggies’ top scorer this season picked up a hamstring injury against St Johnstone at the end of December, ruling him out for an estimated six weeks.

He was back out on the training pitch on Monday in the hope that he could play a role against Hibernian last night, but speaking before County’s trip to Easter Road co-manager Stuart Kettlewell expected that match to come slightly too soon for the 23-year-old.

“We managed to get Ross back into training on Monday, but there was potentially a little bit of a setback on that one,” he said.

“I don’t think we’ve had a complete re-occurrence, but it doesn’t feel 100 per cent.

“We were building him up to get involved on Wednesday, but it looks like it will come too soon.

“We’ll see how he is over the next couple of days.”
