Berwick Rangers defender Dougie Brydon has revealed he is likely to be out of action for the next two months.
The centre-back, who missed the back end of last season with a groin injury, has only played one competitive game this season.
He broke down in training last week when he felt a ‘twinge’, and this week he was due to go back to see a specialist to have the injury assessed.
“It’s really frustrating,” said the Duns-based stopper.
“I had a good run in the team last season and was hoping to kick on this season, but unfortunately that isn’t going to happen.
“I am due to see the specialist on Monday. I have already had two injections but I’m not sure if he will give me a third one so quickly.
“It looks like I will be out of action for six to eight weeks, which is a blow.
“We have a decent squad, we have made a good start to the season and I thought we might be able to make a push for the play-offs again.”
Brydon also said he was ‘gutted’ to have missed the recent trip to Ibrox to play in the Ramsdens Cup.
“That’s three games I’ve missed at Ibrox now,” he said, “let’s just hope we draw them up there in the Scottish Cup later in the season.”
