Injured Fay out for Scots
SCOTLAND captain Gemma Fay is expected to miss Scotland’s next four games after an MRI scan confirmed she has damaged a ligament in her ankle.
The Glasgow City keeper was injured after contesting a high ball in the first of Scotland’s two friendlies against Denmark in Larnaca last Friday.
It was initially feared the damage was more serious, but the outcome of the scan is Fay will be unable to play for six weeks.
Scotland return to the Mediterranean island at the end of February for the annual Cyprus Cup tournament.
They play New Zealand on March 1 and have three further games in the following seven days.
The injury could also impact on Fay’s position as No.1 keeper at her club.
The 35-year-old faces a serious challenge from Lee Alexander, who rejoined the club in December after a season with the Swedish side Mallbacken.
