Derry City have been hit by yet another injury blow as they prepare for tomorrow's key Premier Division clash with Shamrock Rovers in Tallaght.
New signing Max Kramer picked up a groin strain in the weekend's 2-2 draw with Bray Wanderers, and actually only lasted 49 minutes of the game.
Boss Kenny Shiels is already without Aaron Barry and Ryan McBride with long-term injuries while Christian Castells is battling to be match fit.
"It's a hard one to take and he's probably our for Rovers," he told the Derry News.
Meanwhile, striker Jordan Allen has joined Irish League side Coleraine.
