Saints manager Tommy Wright suffered received a new injury blow today as 23-year-old central defender Liam Gordon suffered a fractured elbow in training.
The initial indications suggest that Liam will face between four and six weeks out due to the injury sustained this morning.
Speaking to the club's official website about the news, the Manager said: "This is obviously hugely disappointing news both for the team and for Liam.
"He finished last season strongly and has started pre-season very well ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
"The injury came from an innocent fall during training this morning and it's just an extremely unfortunate thing to have happened."
