A Scottish Championship club Queen of the South has been hit with a selection headache after its reserve goalkeeper Sam Henderson was hit by a runaway cow.
The 19-year old goaltender according to BBC hurt his shoulder in the incident on his father’s farm.
With regular starter Alan Martin out injured, the 19-year-old youth team No 1 shot-stopper was on the bench for Gary Naysmith led-side in last weekend 1-1 draw with Morton, with Jack Leighfield coming as a substitute.
Henderson was due to be on the bench this weekend again, but after suffering a shoulder injury when struck by a speeding cow at his father’s farm, he is facing a race to be fit.
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.”
Queen of the South are currently sixth in the 10-team Scottish Championship, four points off the play-off places.
