St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin has disclosed that Collin Quaner has recovered from the ligament injury he picked up on his debut.

The former Huddersfield striker lasted only 19 minutes of his debut against St Johnstone last month, before he was forced off injured.

Now the player is available for tomorrow’s game against Ross County. A match which is vital in St Mirren’s bid to reach the top six.

“In consideration”

“Collin has trained really well this week. He is in consideration for tomorrow. He’ll be in the squad for tomorrow. Then I’ve got a decision to make whether we throw him in, or whether we start him on the bench” he said.

“He is one that has looked really, really sharp in training. We’ve all waited very patiently for the big man to get back fit. He feels as if he is ready to help the boys out. Collin will be a welcome addition back to the group. We’re all excited to see what the big man will bring” Goodwin stated.

Full-back is out

Goodwin also provided an update on Brandon Mason, who hasn’t played for the Saints since the Betfred Cup semi-final loss to Livingston.

“Brandon has had a recurrence of the injury he picked up vs Livingston. Prior to that happening, Brandon was excellent in the three games he played up to then.

“He took a real serious knock on his ankle. It was touch and go whether it required surgery. We left it to try and settle down on its own. We were confident it was back to a manageable place. Unfortunately in the last couple of weeks it’s started to cause him some problems again. He’s had an injection in that, he won’t be available for this weekend” Goodwin concluded.
