Dundee United boss Ray McKinnon is sweating over the fitness of first-choice keeper Cammy Bell ahead of Saturday’s crunch Championship clash with Falkirk at Tannadice.
The goalie had to be replaced by Luis Zwick in the 74th minute of Saturday’s defeat at Queen of the South.
Bell had suffered a thigh injury with the United medical team now assessing the problem before making a decision on whether he will be available for the game against the Bairns.
Meanwhile, the Tangerines are the latest club to be linked with striker Ross Stewart who has scored 12 times for Albion Rovers this season.
The 21-year-old joined the Coatbridge men from Ayrshire junior outfit Kilwinning Rangers and he helped fund the move by paying part of the transfer fee in order that he could get the chance to play at senior level.
Stewart has grabbed his opportunity with the Tannadice side joining Kilmarnock, St Mirren and Queen of the South in looking at the one time Ardeer Thistle front-man.
Rovers player/manager Darren Young said: “We have been made aware that a number of clubs have looked at Ross and there have been some informal discussions about him.
“No-one has offered him anything yet apart from ourselves as we are keen that he stays here.”
