MORTON star Michael Tidser could be a doubt for his side’s trip to Falkirk in the Ladbrokes Championship this Saturday.

The midfield ace, 28, felt a tight hamstring during Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Celtic in the Scottish Cup and was forced out of action.

Tidser had to be replaced by Bob McHugh with 12 minutes remaining as Ton chased the game.

Ton boss Jim Duffy said: “Michael felt his hamstring and he’s still feeling it. He certainly wasn’t able to train on Monday or Tuesday, so he’s going to be touch and go for the weekend.”
One player who did return from injury at the weekend was left full-back Jack Iredale.

The youngster came on for the final few minutes at Celtic Park and showed no ill-effects from his recent groin injury.

Duffy said: “Jack only did a wee bit of training with us on Friday and I genuinely didn’t know if he was going to be fit enough to go and make a contribution.

“But in the latter stages of the match, we had Michael Tidser injured, but we did not want to make too many changes and we tried to keep it as tight as we possibly could.

“Once the second goal went in we thought there was no point in taking risks but we tried to give the players as much of a chance as possible.”

He added: “So even if Jack is back for this week, it’s likely to be one in, one out, in a sense.

“In an ideal world you’ll want as many of your players fit as possible. We have key players missing but we have to accept that that’s the situation and try to deal with it the best way we can.”
