Raith Rovers striker Mark Stewart admits surgery is his quickest route back to fitness after going under the knife to have his broken wrist mended.

The 28-year-old is facing a spell on the sidelines after having the procedure carried out but concedes having the operation is better than having to wear a cast for eight weeks.

Stewart, who has scored three goals in the last two games, suffered a break to his scaphoid bone during the October 22 win at Falkirk but managed to play in last weekend’s victory over Queen of the South wearing a protective sheath.

markstewartStewart is set to miss Saturday’s Fife derby at Dunfermline but is hoping to make a quick recovery and get back playing in a Raith side that have climbed up to third in the Championship table.

He said: “I broke my wrist during the Falkirk game, I broke it at the start of the second half and I didn’t know. I ended up having to go to the hospital on the Sunday night.

“The operation is the quickest way to get back, it’s a straight-forward procedure. The wrist needs a bit of help to let it heal quicker rather wearing a cast. That would have kept me out for eight weeks.

“Hopefully after surgery I can still train.

“They wanted me in a cast for eight weeks but I didn’t want that because I didn’t want to miss a lot of games, it took me long enough to get in the team.”
