Kilmarnock striker Dean Shiels could miss his side's away game against Dunfermline Athletic in the Scottish Premier League on Saturday because of injury.
Shiels, who has scored six goals in 16 league appearances this season, is still suffering from the bruised foot problem that he picked up in their 2-0 win over Aberdeen at the weekend.
Manager Kenny Shiels said: "Dean is in the treatment room. He is struggling for this weekend but we'll just need to wait and see with him."
Midfielder Liam Kelly, though, is expected to feature at East End park having shaken off a debilitating virus.
"We're hopeful he will be OK and it would be good to get him back as he's a good player," added Shiels.
"Liam was floored by a virus that went around the club. Leon Panikvar and Momo Sissoko both had it and Billy Berntsson has it just now.
"But we hope it is away now and no-one else will get it."
Kilmarnock are currently sixth in the table with 22 points from 17 matches.
