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.
