No Wallace Doubts For McCoist
Manager Ally McCoist has said he has no concerns over Lee Wallace ahead of tomorrow's Scottish Cup tie against Albion Rovers, despite the defender missing two sessions of training earlier in the week.
He returned to full training on Thursday morning after being missing owing to tiredness and a touch of fatigue, so he was given the sessions off to fully recover and get back to his best and he appears to have done that having come through training so far at the end of the week and the gaffer has no concerns about throwing him in again now.
Speaking about the 26 year old left back, the gaffer said.
'Lee hasn't training for a couple of days but he tells us he's absolutely fine. It's more just a wee tiredness thing than anything else, he's not the type who needs to train every day anyway as he's an extremely fit boy.'
A couple of days rest following our from our games plus international commitments isn't going to have done him any harm, and you says days off from training there would've still been recovery work to be done and that sort of stuff, but as long as he's fresh it doesn't really matter.
Ahead of the game we have also ruled out Lewis Macleod following the virus that laid him low recently. The club are still monitoring him closely, but he has been training indoor and in the gym so he's not too bad, but the club haven't risked him in group training outside yet but he shouldn't be too far off.
Kyle Hutton and Chris Hegarty are both now training normally again following their injury issues, and Hegarty did play in the most recent U20 game so his fitness is coming along nicely.
The game this weekend comes too soon for both of them, as it does for Ross Perry and the only other issue is Nicky Clark's recovery from a foot fracture but people are getting closer again now.
