KUDUS Oyenuga has revealed that the injury he sustained in the final minutes of Saturday’s 1-0 win over Queen of the South was just a dead leg — and he should be available for this weekend’s crunch Falkirk tie.
Oyenuga, 23, has been unlucky with injuries so far this campaign, having pulled his hamstring on two separate occasions.
And there was a fear that he was nursing another strain in the dying seconds of the Queens clash following a hefty challenge.
Oyenuga was quick to confirm that the injury isn’t a serious one, but he’ll rest it to make sure that he’ll be available for this weekend.
He told the Tele: “The second part of the season so far hasn’t been my luckiest, especially pulling my hamstring twice.
“I got a heavy knock on my quad on Saturday and I said to the gaffer that I’m going to give it a couple of days rest because I was struggling to walk.
“I didn’t train on Monday, I had a recovery day and I iced it because it’s still a bit sore. I should be fine for Saturday though because it’s pretty much just a dead leg and they’re not serious injuries. With a bit of rest, it should be fine.”
The Morton striker was impressed with his team-mates’ performance before his late introduction, and says the result proved that even in uncomfortable circumstances, this Ton side are capable of grinding out victories.
He said: “It was a great performance from the boys and a big win. Everyone played well. The first half was okay but the second half we improved, got better and won it.
“I want to play every game, but if you can come on and contribute to the team, that’s always good.
“The gaffer said to me to come on against Queens and keep the ball. That’s what I did, I had a lively cameo.”
