We’re all waiting to hear the latest on Stephen Welsh’s fitness after the player was injured during the 4-0 win against St Mirren.
The defender left the ground with a boot and crutches on Wednesday night with the club looking to assess the damage today.
Taking a closer look at the incident, it just doesn’t look good. Welsh’s ankle bends very awkwardly after studs were placed on the ankle by Obika.
Have a look at it again.

Welsh was just starting to get a run of games, and as we await the prognosis, there’s virtually no chance of the youngster being able to play on Sunday against St Johnstone.
If we hadn’t had bad luck this season we would have no luck at all. Christopher Jullien colliding with the post in a freak accident, all but ending his season, not getting a centre-back in when Liverpool swooped in to bring in Davies and then Welsh coming down with an injury.
The sooner this season is over, the better!
