Ross County boss Jim McIntyre waits on injury updates before Motherwell meeting

Ross County boss Jim McIntyre has a couple of unnamed injury doubts for the Ladbrokes Premiership encounter with Motherwell.

Defender Richard Foster is out for the rest of the campaign after undergoing groin surgery.

Forward Craig Curran (concussion) remains sidelined for the Staggies.

With two fixtures remaining, County are in sixth place and only able to catch Motherwell, who they host on Wednesday night.

The former Tranmere Rovers and Nuneaton player Curran said: "Tomorrow night is a massive game, it is a must-win for us and then we have a tough game against Aberdeen.

"If we can finish with two victories it would be fantastic.

"It has been a fantastic season for us. It is testament to the work that has gone in and hopefully we can build on it."

Motherwell full-back Steven Hammell returns from suspension.

Skipper Keith Lasley is also free to play, with his appeal against his Aberdeen red card set to be heard on Thursday.

Josh Law remains a doubt with a foot injury, although he could return for Sunday's clash with newly-crowned champions Celtic, but James McFadden (broken ankle) is sidelined.

While Well still cling on to hopes of catching St Johnstone, they will hope to avoid slipping any further down the standings when they take on County in Dingwall.

Motherwell have yet to beat the Staggies this season and their last trip to the Global Energy Stadium ended in a 3-0 defeat.

Now boss Mark McGhee is eager to see that disappointing run ended.

"Our last trip up there was probably one of our worst results of the season but we went there with a weakened squad, all our senior guys were missing so we discount that one a wee bit," he said.

"But we still need to go there and put on a performance.

"We've not done well against them, they won here at Fir Park too. So our record isn't great against County and we know it will be a difficult game."
