Stephen Robinson has provided a fitness update ahead of Motherwell v Celtic on Sunday afternoon.
The Well head into this game in good form, taking 12 points from their last 18, beating Ross County 4-0 and Livingston away 2-0 in their last two fixtures. They face a Celtic team on the ropes after one win in six.
Fir Park manager Robinson isn’t seeking injury worries ahead of the match with key men in Ricki Lamie, Trevor Carson, Bevis Mugabi and others all missing.
He says that his squad will be ‘light’ against Celtic as attacker Devante Cole becomes a fresh concern after coming off last week against Livi via a tight hamstring.
“Devante will be touch and go,” Robinson explained. “He will join in gently today (Friday) and we’ll look again on Saturday. It will be a late decision on Devante.
“We’re light on bodies still. It will be after the international break and then we’ll start to see players come back.
“We’ll have Bevis Mugabi by then, he had his period out with his shoulder, we’ll have Ricki Lamie by then, we’ll have Sherwin Seedorf by then, and the only player we’ll add to the squad this week is Liam Grimshaw.
“We’ve been very unfortunate with our injury situation at the moment and you try to do everything in your power to stop that, but when seven of them are trauma injuries – four knees, two shoulders and an Achilles – there’s not a lot you can do about that.
“Hopefully after we get through the game on Sunday we’ll have more numbers to choose from and set us up, going into another difficult period.”
