Manager Ally McCoist has said that Dean Shiels will be given all the time he needs to recover from his knee injury, and nobody will be rushing him back to action.
Shiels is still working his way back to full fitness and it is slow going stuff, following a medial knee ligament injury he sustained last season, and has spent five months on the sidelines following the game against Annan back in March.
He did make his comeback this season in the four one win over Brechin back in August and even scored which came as a good boost, but his form hasn't been what it's capable of and he missed the rematch after suffering a complication to the injury in training.
The complication isn't serious and the 28 year old has been back out running and doing light training, but it has served as a reminder of him maybe trying to do too much a bit too quick as he builds up his full fitness again.
Speaking to the Official Site Ally McCoist said the player would be handled with care and there was no rush, the focus was on getting him back fully fit and fully recovered.
'Dean walked off at training last week, his knee didn't feel right and with something as important as that you can't take chances.'
McCoist says he will be very closely monitored over the coming weeks, and whilst the player is obviously best placed to make a decision on how he feels, the physios and medical staff will also play a huge role in how quickly he returns to certain types of training.
Left back Lee Wallace also joined the physio after withdrawing from Scottish duty and missing the last match with a knee problem off his own. He should be back in contention for the game against East Fife if all goes to plan.
Chris Hegarty was also expected to begin running work this week, and Arnold Peralta has now rejoined full training following his illness.
