ROSS COUNTY goalkeeper Scott Fox will have his thigh injury assessed after limping out of Tuesday night’s 0-0 Ladbrokes Premiership draw at St Johnstone.
The 30-year-old stopper went down after making a clearance, with no other player near him, and was helped from the field with 15 minutes to go.
Aaron McCarey replaced him and may be set for an extended run in the team if fears of Fox being out for up to two months are realised.
It was an otherwise uneventful evening in Perth, with only the odd chance at either end.
“The disappointing thing is the injury to Foxy, so depending how serious that it is it could be six to eight weeks,” County boss Owen Coyle said.
“But it’s probably too early to assess it. We’ll get a scan and find what grade the tear in his quad is.
“A draw is probably fair. Any point away from home in this league is a good point and for us, it’s seven points from four games. It’s an encouraging start.
“We just need to add that bit of quality passing as we go forward and look to keep improving.”
Stefan Scougall drew a couple of saves from Fox before he was taken off, while Davis Keillor-Dunn had the best chance for County.
It was the 200th game in charge for Saints boss Tommy Wright, who was satisfied with a point after three consecutive defeats.
“It’s a nice milestone – it’s the longest I’ve been at a club,” he said. “As a manager, it’s not often you get to a double century.
“It would have been nicer if we had won, but I’ll take the point. After the results we’ve had, you need to start and rebuild again.”
