THE thought of goal machine Cammy Keith heading off on a two-week holiday is one which would normally fill Keith supporters with dread and fear.
But Maroons boss Darren Still is thankful that his main marksman will only miss one match as a result of his mid-season search for sunshine.
Still is more concerned that in addition to losing Cammy for the visit of Fraserburgh this weekend, he could be minus two more key performers.
On-form Jamie Lennox is definitely banned after picking up an incredibly harsh red card during last week’s 4-2 win at Lossiemouth.
Experienced centre back Kris Niddrie, who scored in the win, also went off injured and is rated doubtful for the Broch clash.
“In addition to this, both Bruce Raffell and Graham Lonie are awaiting the results of scans they had on the injuries which have kept them out for a while now,” Still said. “It will be a late call on Kris, and losing both Cammy and Jamie is obviously a major blow.”
Still admitted his team wasn’t quite firing on all cylinders at Lossie despite their win, and was critical of two soft goals conceded by his players.
But he dismissed any notion of defensive weaknesses in his team, pointing to a string of good recent results which have boosted the Maroons’ league ranking.
