Hearts of Oak are on hopeful goalkeeper Philemon McCarthy will return to action in three weeks.
The agile gloves man had to be substituted in the second half of Sunday’s Ghana Premier League derby against Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium due to a suspected broken finger.
Further checks revealed the 28-year-old suffered bruises and that has allayed fears of a lengthy lay-off.
“We are lucky it wasn’t a compound fracture but a bruise and that has left him with a sore,” Hearts goalkeepers’ trainer Abubakari Damba told MTNFootball.com
“I’m not expecting him this week but next week or so he will be fine. I can help him recover because I broke my finger so many times with the national team.”
McCarthy has managed to revive his career in the second round of the league with some eye-catching displays.
