Not good news on Loovens

Just when you want to get back on track in the league, more injuries affect the plans Thanks to a hamstring problem, defender Glenn Loovens will be out for "three or four weeks" according to Neil Lnnon . The big Dutchman started the first SPL game of the season against Hibs but now faces time on the sidelines and looks set to miss games against Aberdeen, Dundee United and St Johnstone. Speaking after Wednesday night's 2-0 friendly defeat at Swansea, Lennon said: "It's a strange one, he came up off the ground and had a bit of a collision in training and felt the hamstring, go and it will put him out for three or four weeks."  However, Lennon had more positive news in respect of Kris Commons and Joe Ledley who should be available for the trip to Pittodrie. Former Cardiff man Ledley missed out on a trip back to Wales after picking up a niggle against Inter Milan, while Commons was forced to leave the field with a toe problem. But Lennon said: "Kris is fine, he has had an infection in his toe and the strapping came off and when they put it back on it was too pressurised for him to continue but he should be okay for Sunday. Joe had a niggle from the Inter Milan game on Sunday but he should be fine for Sunday too." Lennon also says he is no closer to bringing in a goalkeeper, saying: "We have options but I can't give you anymore at the moment. We are no further down the line than at the weekend."
