Partick Thistle have suffered another injury blow after defender Rhys Breen suffered a suspected broken ankle in training on Thursday.

The Rangers defender is on a season-long loan with Ian McCall’s side this season and has impressed so far for the Maryhill Magyars in their push for promotion back to the Championship.

Partick manager Ian McCall confirmed the news yesterday afternoon, leaving his side with only one recognised central defender for this weekend’s vital league clash at Firhill against East Fife.

“Rhys Breen is away for an x-ray and may have broken his ankle or maybe a ligament strain,” said McCall, who was speaking to promote Purple Thistle Day this Saturday, which will raise awareness for Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland.

“From having four centre-halves, we’ve now got one. I’d say it was a chance for someone else but we haven’t got another centre-back.”

The Jags haven’t had their troubles to seek with injuries this season and losing Breen for a lengthy spell would be a big blow after a difficult start to life in League One.
