INJURIES marred Elgin City's 2-1 win over Annan on Saturday.

Midfielder Chris Dodd broke his collar bone just minutes after coming on as substitute, and could be out for the rest of the season.

Centre back Cammy Eadie needed ten stitches in a knee gash after limping off to leave City with ten men for the closing minutes of the match.

Manager Gavin Price confirmed on twitter after the game that Dodd's injury was as serious as feared.

"Downside is a serious injury to (Chris Dodd). Looks like his season could be over," he said.

"It's a shame because I like Chris coming on as substitute in our home games. When the game opens up it suits him. We lost our way a wee bit for a ten minute spell (after he went off) until we knew what we were doing."

Dodd was expected to see a specialist this week to determine the extent of his fracture and how long his recovery time will be.

However Eadie could be fit to resume his place in City's defence this weekend when they welcome leaders Montrose to Borough Briggs.

"I think Cammy will be OK," said Price. "It opened up his leg. he's got stitches in his knee but I'm hoping its just a superficial sort of wound and won't be anything more serious than that."

In Friday's Northern Scot – Elgin City skipper Jon-Paul McGovern's feeling young at 37 and has no thoughts about retirement.
