Ross Gray could be back in action for Berwick Rangers a lot sooner than was originally expected.
The midfielder was carried off with suspected medial ligament damage at Shielfield earlier in the season and there were fears that he could be sidelined for several months.
Player-manager Colin Cameron said: “The worst case scenario was he could be missing for up to eight or nine months.”
But scans have revealed the damage is not as bad as first anticipated and Cameron said there is a possibility the midfielder could be back in action within the next ‘two or three weeks.’
“That would be a tremendous boost for us,” said Cameron, “because obviously we thought he was going to be out for a lot longer.
“There is a possibility that he could be back in action in two or three weeks time.
“If that is the case it means we will have even more options,” he said.
Meanwhile, Cameron says he is keen to add to his squad by signing another centre-back.
“We definitely need cover in that department,” he said.
“Stephen Tulloch has missed the last couple of games and could be out for a while yet.
“Dean Hoskins has filled in well, but it is obvious we need to sign another centre-back to give us cover.
“I might have to go out and try and get someone on loan, we will see.”
