Skye are wait­ing to see if their worst fears are con­firmed and that com­mand­ing full-back Ally Mac­don­ald re­quires cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment surgery.

Mac­don­ald was on crutches af­ter be­ing injured last week.

Man­ager John Ma­cLeod said: “We’re wait­ing for the swelling to go down to al­low a scan.

“It looks like cru­ci­ate trou­ble, which would mean a long-term ab­sence and not play­ing again this sea­son but we won’t know for sure un­til the scan re­sults.

“It’s a re­ally mas­sive blow for us as Ally has been one of our most con­sis­tent per­form­ers over the past five or six years.”

John Gillies may move to full-back for to­mor­row’s home Pre­mier­ship game with Kin­gussie as Skye, who have Stru­art Grant and Ruar­idh Ma­cLeod back, chase their first vic­tory.

The trip to Portree comes a week too soon for Lee Bain and Kin­gussie man­ager John Gib­son, whose team has scored two goals in five games, said: “It’s frus­trat­ing that our per­for­mances are good but we’re not tak­ing chances. But goals will come.”
