Two-week absence for midfielder

Two-week absence for midfielder

Dundee United will be without Scotland Under-21 international midfielder Stuart Armstrong for the next fortnight.

The 22-year-old missed the weekend win over Ross County due to an ankle injury picked up during the recent defeat at Celtic. Armstrong has already been ruled out of the forthcoming visit to St Mirren.

"Stuart is coming along nicely but while we are not sure how long he will be out for I would think it will be a couple of weeks," coach Darren Jackson told the Dundee Courier. "We have had to wait on the swelling going down before getting a proper look at the ankle and there is a lot of bruising there.

"It was a block tackle on him during the Celtic game that did the damage and he was caught pretty badly."
