CHARLIE Telfer faces another potential layoff after injuring his ankle again on Saturday.

The midfielder has had difficulties with his ankle throughout the course of the season, having injections on it during the Betfred Cup group stages back in July.

The former Almere City player has played for the Ton 13 times this season, scoring against Ayr United and Inverness Caley Thistle.

He’s had several knocks in recent weeks, and missed the 2-0 defeat with Alloa Athletic because of the injury.

The former Rangers and Dundee United player was put back into the starting line-up on Saturday, and played well against league leaders Ayr United.

But the 23-year-old went down holding the same ankle again after 70 minutes.

He tried to play on with the injury but was forced to leave the field shortly afterwards.

Morton manager Jonatan Johansson confirmed it was the same problem again, and admitted it was a risk he had to take playing the midfielder from the start.

He told the Tele: “It’s the same injury, it’s disappointing as I felt Charlie was having a good game.

“He was the one in midfield who was looking to go into those pockets, but these things happen.

“I hope he’s not too bad.

“We put him back in and we knew it was a risk, but we felt it was a risk worth taking.”
