Sevco appear to have suffered an injury blow ahead of Sunday’s clash with Celtic.

Russell Martin was due to preview the match at a media conference today but was replaced by David Bates.

The club twitter account announced that Martin would be speaking then deleted that tweet before young Bates came in to share his thoughts. Martin was also missing from training.

Martin missed Sunday’s Scottish Cup tie against Falkirk, after reports on Wednesday claimed that he would miss the visit of Celtic some trusted sources were told that all was well.

If the on loan Norwich defender misses out Graeme Murty does have the experienced Bruno Alves to call in.

The former Porto ace played his first 90 minutes of the year in the Scottish Cup win over Morton and will be expected to partner Bates in a match most home fans expect their company to win by a couple of goals.

Mr Murty will give his pre-match thoughts tomorrow.
