GARY Oliver could face a lengthy period on the sidelines after being forced off injured on Saturday.

The forward was playing well until ex-Ton man Jamie Stevenson cynically brought him down on the halfway line just before the hour mark.

The 23-year-old was not able to get up from the injury, clutching his left shoulder after landing awkwardly from the tackle and was taken off shortly afterwards.

Peterhead racked up five yellow cards at the weekend, and were a physical side as they looked to impose themselves on the tie.

Manager Jonatan Johansson revealed the striker had gone to hospital to have his shoulder looked at further.
He told the Tele: “It’s a bad one, it was a bad tackle and he’s been taken to hospital for an X-ray.

“It’s a cup game and we knew it would be a physical game.

“Some of the tackles were really poor and it was disappointing for us as we could lose Gary for a while. It looked like a bad one.”

Jim McAlister also had to go off at half-time, and was replaced by Chris Millar.

However, Johansson says it was just a stomach bug, and nothing more serious.

He added: “We’ve had a little bit of illness in the team, and he felt his stomach at half-time and we had to take him off.”
