Queen of the South could be forced to play without a substitute goalkeeper after third-choice Sam Henderson was injured – by a runaway cow.
The 19-year-old was at his father’s farm when he was hit by the cow, causing him to injure his shoulder.
Henderson was due to be on the bench for Queen of the South when they face Dunfermline on Saturday as first-choice keeper Alan Martin is also injured.
Assistant manager Dougie Anderson told The Scottish Sun: “Sam has missed training this week after being struck. It could have been worse as the cow ran at him for a second time but he managed to get out of the way.
“He has a sore shoulder so he is getting closely monitored and a lot of treatment as we do not want to go into the game without a goalkeeper on the bench.”
Henderson was on the bench last weekend for the 1-1 draw with Morton.
