A week after their most famous victory as a senior club, Dungannon Swifts have been dealt a blow ahead of their game with Mid-Ulster rivals Portadown.
Rodney McAree, just back from a lengthy lay off following surgery on a troublesome knee injury in the summer, has been ruled as an unlikely starter for the trip to Shamrock Park after picking up a calf strain.
It's a blow that Swifts manager Harry Fay could have done without as he looks to build on a first league win of the season.
"Rodney is the most creative player at the club and makes so much happen on the pitch," said Fay.
"The trip to Portadown provides us with the chance to show that last week's win against Linfield was no fluke and that we have the quality in our team to be consistent high performers."
"I suppose, if Rod doesn't make the starting eleven for the Portadown game, it will be an opportunity to show that we have the quality within our squad to be consistent high performers."
