The club can confirm that Robbie Deas suffered a broken leg near the end of yesterday’s match with Raith Rovers. 

The game typified Robbie’s career with us thus far as he was outstanding throughout match and scored the goal which put us top of the Championship. This is despite our squad having the worst run of injuries in living memory, with almost a full team of 1st team players out injured.

Robbie is a warrior and consistently one of the fittest players at the club and he will receive the very best treatment and rehab from our Head of Medical Dept Daniel Cluett and his team.

We look forward to seeing him back on the pitch in due course and ask the fans to keep up their tremendous backing for the club as we all battle through this together.
