MORTON will assess Rory McKeown’s calf injury over the coming days.

The Ton left-back was ruled out of Saturday’s game against Dunfermline after picking up the knock last week.

The 25-year-old has been a regular in manager Jonatan Johansson’s starting line-up in recent times.

The former Ipswich Town and Kilmarnock player has made 18 appearances so far for the Greenock outfit this season, after signing under previous manager Ray McKinnon back in August last year.

The Ton would be light on cover in the left-back position if he was ruled out for a spell on the sidelines, with Iredale currently the only other senior left-back option in the first team squad.

Young Morton left-back Lewis Strapp was loaned out to Annan Athletic earlier this month, after spending the first half of the season on loan with the Galabankies.

But the manager hopes to have a clearer idea about the injury this week.

The Ton boss told the Tele: “I was disappointed with Rory McKeown not making the team, but I feel Jack did well in his place.

“Jack is more of a wing-back than a full-back but he did well on Saturday.

“Rory had a knock on his calf. I hope it’s just a knock and not a small tear, we will have to wait and see.”
