Motherwell goalkeeper Lee Hollis is set for a month on the sidelines after breaking a finger in the draw with Hibs at Easter Road.

Hollis, who had only just returned to the side in recent weeks following a long spell out with an ankle injury, suffered the fracture five minutes into the game, but was strapped up at half time and was able to see out the 90 minutes.

However, there is better news starting to come out of the Fir Park treatment room after nearly a full team missed the trip to Edinburgh.

’Well manager Stuart McCall said: “We had nine players missing against Hibs and although it was a decent point we didn’t play particularly well.

“However it’s good to have Stevie Hammell, Zaine Francis-Angol and Stuart Carswell available to face Inverness on Wednesday.

“Henri Anier and Lee Erwin are also back in training and Simon Ramsden isn’t far away.

“All we can wish for is come the run-in we have as many players available to us as possible.

“Unfortunately Lee Hollis broke his little finger five minutes into the game at Easter Road. At half time we strapped him up as we didn’t realise it was broken.

“So he is added to the casualty list for another three or four weeks, however Gunnar Nielsen is available again after his ankle injury so that balances out.”

Following the visit of Inverness ’Well host the second half of a Highland double header on Saturday as Ross County come calling at Fir Park.
