Kenny Brannigan is struggling to get 16 fully fit players for tomorrow`s match against Falkirk.

Says the manager, "The good news is that Paul Burns is back from suspension and will be named in the squad. Willie McLaren has been suffering from a sickness bug all week and is doubtful while Neil Scally is also sidelined.

"We might just have to stick Sean O`Connor on the bench to make up the numbers but the big man only resumed training this week and has still an awful lot of catching up to do.

"Big `Homer` could be out for two to three weeks with that groin injury and I`ve already stated earlier in the week what a miss that will be. He`s a massive player for us!

Some fans just don`t realise how important he really is--in fact I don`t think some people have a clue. We need someone big and strong up front and he`s our `target man`.

"We had about half a dozen new faces joining us for training this week including Colin McMenamin and Eric Paton both of whom suffered with the dramatic cut-backs at Dundee. Colin of course comes from Dumfries but is now staying in Gartcosh and Eric is an former Queen`s player who was at Palmerston for many years."
