    Latest injury update from Stuart Kettlewell

    Latest injury update from Stuart Kettlewell

    Manager Stuart Kettlewell has offered an update on the players who are currently sidelined. 

    Speaking at Thursday’s press conference, the manager provided a more detailed update on the injury list.

    It was announced this week that Lennon Miller has picked up a knee injury in our match against Aberdeen. The initial prognosis is that Miller will be missing for a minimum of three months.

    “It’s a really unfortunate injury for Lennon and it’s a real blow for everyone,” Stuart Kettlewell said.

    “He’s valuable to this team and I’m gutted for him. Despite the news however, the person with the best body language and the person with the most maturity was the 17-year-old.

    “We know it’s a 12 week injury, as it’s a small fracture in his patella.

    “He had to get everything else check out and has been to see the top guy in Britain for this type of injury.

    “Lennon is comfortable and I have no doubts he’ll come back stronger.”

    We also discovered this week that Paul McGinn picked up a facial injury against Kilmarnock and that we’d been advised that the defender will be missing for six weeks.

    “Six weeks is what has been detailed for Paul,” the manager added.

    “He had surgery [yesterday]. It’s a fractured cheek.”

    Jon Obika has been a long-term absentee and hasn’t featured since our win over Hibernian at Fir Park in August.

    “We had some positive news on Jon,” Kettlewell stated.

    “The news is he starts to come into contention and hopefully for the next few games, or certainly beyond the international break, he’ll come into consideration for us.”

    Motherwell Fortune’s

    Motherwell picked up a hard earned point in Perth, coming back from 2-0 down to pick up a draw. Shane Blaney scored his first Motherwell goal whilst Mika Biereth scored his fourth goal in five games.

    It’s still been eight games without a win for the Steelmen but the second-half comeback could bring renewed confidence.

    Opposition Report

    Hearts were in Viaplay semi-final action on Sunday against Rangers at Hampden, losing 3-1 to the Gers.

    Prior to the trip to Hampden, the Jambos beat Livingston 1-0 at Tynecastle.

    They are fifth in the table on 14 points as it stands.

    Lawrence Shankland has been the main source of goals this season for Hearts. The striker is on eight goals in all competitions, but despite less minutes on the pitch, Alex Lowry has been a provider, notching four assists and one goal in 13 games.

    Use of Pyro in football stadiums

    Use of Pyro in football stadiums

    We need to reiterate that the use of pyrotechnics in football grounds is a criminal offence and we are disappointed they were used by some of our supporters at last night’s game.

    The use of pyrotechnics can cause injury to players, stewards and fellow supporters.

    If this continues, the club could be subject to sanctions.

    Supporters are the most important component of match days and we encourage that support to continue in a safe manner.

    Mentality monsters // St Johnstone 2-2 Motherwell

    Stuart Kettlewell has been hoping that his team would spark into life at McDiarmid Park on Tuesday night, and it looked like they had done just that when Conor Wilkinson found the back of the net having dinked Mitov in goals. 

    A VAR check would follow however and after the goal was ruled out for handball, St Johnstone powered home two goals from corners to take a healthy lead into the break.

    Another game and the big moments seemed to be going in the opposite way of Motherwell, however they didn’t give up.

    With the introduction of Theo Bair and Georgie Gent, Motherwell were lively and got a deserved goal through Shane Blaney just past the hour mark.

    Less than 10 minutes later, Mika Biereth finished off a team move to level the game with 15 minutes remaining.

    The visitors continued to push to find a winner with Oli Shaw presented with the best chance to win the game, however he couldn’t get the ball out of his feet in time.

    Motherwell came back to earn a point from behind once again this season, a similar tale that Stuart Kettlewell wants to rectify ahead of Hearts on Saturday.
