On Tuesday Philippe Clement told Sevco shareholders how he was going to eliminate his squads injury problems.

At today’s media conference he revealed that Danilo and Tom Lawrence won’t play again this year with the Brazilian facing the prospect of requiring surgery on his knee.

Ryan Jack, Nico Raskin and Scott Wright won’t face Dundee tomorrow due to injury, no update was offered on Borna Barisic who missed the win over Hearts due to injury.

Danilo has hardly been banging them in around goal but he is a clear upgrade on Cyriel Dessers who will come back into contention for the striking role as well as moving Abdallah Sima in from the wing.

Tom (Lawrence) will be out for sure until the winter break, and Danilo for sure will be out for that time so that is not so good.

They’ll be back after the winter break?

No, maybe after also but we won’t get them back before the winter break into games.

What is Danilo’s issue?

A problem with his knee because of a bad tackle in the game.

Will that require surgery?

Chances, yes it will require surgery

That could be long term, you are talking months?

Yes, yes. Indeed.

Clement expects money to be made available in January to sign a striker. Micky Beale spent £14m on Danilo, Dessers and Sam Lammers during the summer transfer window.

    Nae luck!

    Danilo – their only decent outfield signing – could be out for the best part of this season?

    It’s developing nicely into a Perfect Storm.

    Poor squad, injuries piling up, no money – and Clement has to deliver the SPL title?

    And it’s not as though Clement is guaranteed a major squad rebuild in the summer.

    If he doesn’t secure the CL monies for next season, then everything is his fault.

    Almost – almost – feel sorry for the guy. 🙂
