Injury Worries Just Add To Woes
Things are not going the right way for Hearts
Hearts are hoping that Callum Paterson will be fit to face Kilmarnock on Saturday after the midfielder suffered a nasty looking ankle injury at Motherwell over the weekend when he was forced off the pitch in the 55th minute. Despite taking the lead, the bottom of the table club were beaten 2-1.Manager Gary Locke said: "That's the way things are happening for us at the moment. We'll wait and see how Callum settles down and the physio will look at him as well. Hopefully, it's not too serious but it certainly looked like a bad one when he went over on his ankle."The club are also worried about There is also concern over Billy King, who was unable to play at Fir Park on Saturday. The young midfielder had to be content to watch the game from the stands with his sore foot in a brace. Locke added: "Billy has a wee problem with the sole of his foot. It's getting worse each day with the more impact he puts on it so I think the only cure is rest. Hopefully that will settle down over the next few days. Our physio is hoping that just a few days off it will see it settle down. It's like a bruise. If you keep hitting it, then it won't get any better. We had to leave him out on Saturday and hopefully he'll be back training at some point during the week."
