ON-LOAN keeper Thomas Flynn is struggling to be fit for Albion Rovers' trip to Elgin City this weekend.
The 20-year-old needed stitches for a gashed knee during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Clyde.
Flynn was stretchered off after 17 minutes of the North Lanarkshire derby clash and replaced with Derek Gaston.
Rovers boss Paul Martin admits the Easter Road rookie's fitness is cause for concern ahead of the long trip to Borough Briggs.
Meanwhile, the manager has praised his side's efforts ahead of the club's final seven games of the season.
Rovers currently sit in second place in the Third Division, six points behind leaders Arbroath who drew 1-1 with Clyde last night.
Martin said: "The players have been absolutely brilliant. They have given absolutely everything and more.
"They showed in the last ten minutes against Clyde how much it meant to them and I was disappointed they didn't get the winning goal they deserved."
