Kilmarnock boss Gary Locke hoping for good news on injury front


Kilmarnock manager Gary Locke admits he is keeping his fingers crossed for good news on the injuries to Tope Obadeyi and Mark O’Hara.

Defender O’Hara missed Saturday’s 2-2 draw at home to Hearts after going over on his ankle during training on Friday and was due to go for a scan yesterday.

Winger Obadeyi had to come off after 32 minutes at the weekend due to a hamstring problem.

Locke has not had his problems to seek this season having been plagued by a series of injuries to key players but he is hoping the pair can make a speedy recovery.

Locke, whose side travel to St Johnstone for Saturday’s fourth round Scottish Cup tie, said: “It’s frustrating because we lost Mark O’Hara on Friday to injury and we lost Tope on Saturday and we have had a lot of injury problems.

“It would be nice if we can get a wee break in terms of that going forward in 2016.

“Obadeyi has a wee pull in the hamstring, we’ll assess it and go again.

“Mark got an ankle injury on Friday, he went over on that. We’ll see how he is after his scan.”
