BRECHIN City boss Ray McKinnon has revealed that Greenock footballer Craig Molloy could face months on the sidelines after suffering suspected medial ligament damage on Saturday.

Local lad Molloy, whose older brother Thomas was a youth player with Morton, was forced to hobble off in the 44th minute of Saturday’s match following a collision with Conor Pepper.

McKinnon was delighted with his side’s 3-1 victory but spoke more of his concerns for skipper Molloy, 28, in his post-match press conference.

He said: “Morton proved today that they are a good side. They had chances and proved they are dangerous but it was a deserved victory and could have been more.

“All in all I’m happy — but that’s two of our midfielders who have done their ligaments now: Callum Tapping and Craig Molloy.

“I’ve got a really small squad and Craig could be out for a long time if he has done his medial ligament, and that’s the way it looks.

“It’s disappointing for him because he’s been doing great for us. He’s been leading the team very well as captain. It’s a huge loss.”
