Inverness Injury Issues Improved

Good news that injuries have settled down for Terry Butcher

Terry Butcher is pleased that injuries to influential pair Richie Foran and Andrew Shinnie are not as serious as first feared. They both missed out of Inverness' Scottish Cup defeat against Kilmarnock last week. Captain Foran suffered a knee injury and Shinnie picked up a hamstring problem but they could be available for the visit of Celtic this weekend. Speaking on Thursday, Butcher said: "They are fine and we'll see how they are tomorrow. Andy probably has more of a chance than Richie at the moment but we'll see. I've not ruled them out yet. I've had the specialist's report and it's pretty good news - not the bad news we first feared. We'll wait and see what they're like. We've got another plan in place if either one is out and we'll move on from there. I'm still very pleased with what I've got and if both of them do miss the match we've got good replacements. We've got Kilmarnock as well on Wednesday at home. If there is a slight doubt about playing on Saturday against Celtic, then the Kilmarnock match very much comes to the fore and maybe they could be available for that. It's still relatively early but they both want to play and they're both desperate to get back out there."
