Routis fear for County

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

ROSS County boss Owen Coyle is fear­ing the worst for Chris Routis fol­low­ing the mid­fielder’s in­jury on Sun­day.

Routis in­jured his shoul­der dur­ing the 2-1 de­feat to Rangers, and Coyle fears the blow could end his sea­son.

The 27-year-old is set to see a spe­cial­ist to find out the full ex­tent of the in­jury, though he has been cleared of a frac­ture and will def­i­nitely miss t o n i g h t ’s c l a s h w i t h Aberdeen as Coyle’s in­jury prob­lems con­tinue.

“We will be dec­i­mated by i n j u r y, that goes w i t h o u t s a y i n g ,” the Stag­gies boss said. “Chris Routis will see a spe­cial­ist given the in­jury he had on Sun­day.

“We are hop­ing it’s not as first feared be­cause it looked as though the way he dam­aged his shoul­der could be sea­son end­ing — we cer­tainly hope that’s not the case.

“We know he’s not frac­tured it, it’s now down to the spe­cial­ist to find the best way to get fit and healthy and for us it would help to know as soon as pos­si­ble.”
