Falkirk facing defensive dilemma after ex-Celtic youngster Lewis Kidd left on crutches with foot injury



FALKIRK are facing a defensive dilemma after Lewis Kidd sustained a painful foot injury in Saturday’s derby win over Dunfermline.

The former Celtic and Queen of the South youngster has been an ever-present at right-back for the Bairns in recent weeks since Aaron Muirhead was ruled out because of knee surgery.

But the 21-year-old has been left on crutches after hobbling out of the 2-1 victory over the Pars at the weekend.

The Bairns are hopeful there are no broken bones but are awaiting confirmation as they contemplate further problems at right-back for this weekend’s visit of Raith Rovers.

Falkirk number two James McDonaugh said: “It was a sore one for him but we’re not quite sure of the extent of the injury yet.

“We don’t think there’s anything broken but it’s across the top of his foot and he’s on crutches.

“We’ll just need to wait to see the results of a scan.

“Unless he makes a miracle recovery he won’t make Saturday.”
