ELGIN City’s quest to go top of the Third Division has been dented by an injury to key midfielder Brian Cameron.

Cameron is out for at least a fortnight after aggravating an Achilles’ injury during Tuesday night’s 2-0 League Cup defeat at East Fife.

City travel to Montrose this weekend hoping to make it two league wins out of two following a superb 4-1 home success over Berwick last Saturday.

But having stuck with the same starting line-up for every league and cup match so far, manager Ross Jack will be forced to make his first change because of Cameron’s injury.

Jack was thrilled by his team’s opening day win, but warned his players their good work will go to waste if they don’t follow up the Berwick success with another good result at Links Park.

“It was an unbelievable start for us, but it will count for nothing if we go to Montrose and throw it all away,” said the City boss.

“We’ve got to build on this. We’ve set the standard and we can’t fall short of that. Saturday is an absolutely massive game and we need to go there and get another three points.

Local youngster Cameron has made a flying start to the season, scoring in both opening games including the memorable victory at Ross County.

But he missed a part of pre-season with an Achilles’ tendon problem which flared up in midweek, and he will now be given time to rest the injury properly.

“He will be out for Saturday and we’ll give him a couple of weeks to rest. Ross O’Donoghue’s back injury also flared up on Tuesday and it will be touch and go whether he makes it.”
