Further Injury Woe For Saints Latvian Striker

  • Wed, Jul 08, 2009 @ 15:44

Having just returned to the squad following three months out with a knee ligament injury, Gints Freimanis broke a bone in his hand while training on Monday in an accidental clash with team mate Alan Cawley.

The Latvian striker now looks certain to miss Friday's game with Galway as well as St Pat's opening Europa League match at Richmond Park on July 16th.

“This is unbelievable, I've rarely been injured in my career, I find myself out for three months with ligament problems and I only just come back when this happens “, said Freimanis.

“According to the doctor it was a very unusual break, hopefully it won't take too long to reset but then with my luck you never know”.

With Pat's already missing strikers Mark Quigley and Mark Leech, Gints is hugely disappointed at not being able to return and make an immediate impact up front for the Saints “it's been frustrating watching from the sideline , I was really looking forward to getting back playing but I guess that's football and I will just be even more determined to play well when I do come back”.
