CROCKED keeper Grant Adam admits his injury nightmare could not have happened at a worse time.
The former Rangers stopper was only two weeks into life as a St Mirren player when he was rocked by a horror blow to his knee.
Adam damaged his posterior cruciate ligament as well as picking up a hairline fracture on his tibia when he collided with team-mate Jordan Holt during a run out with St Mirren Under-20s side earlier this month.
The crock shock means the goalie, above, is now facing up to a potential four-month spell on the sidelines.
It was the first of two bitter injury blow for the Saints dressing room, coming just days before Darren McGregor was ruled out for the rest of the season after snapping his cruciate knee ligament.
That was a devastating blow for the defender and stopper Adam admits he’s been left gutted by his own fitness disaster.
He said: “I’ll be in the brace for six weeks and I’m a fortnight into that.
“The next two weeks will all be about putting weight on the knee again so we’ll need to wait and see how that comes along.
“It was a nightmare start for me after signing on with St Mirren.
“I’m gutted that this has happened but I’ll just need to work hard over the next couple of months so I can get back playing as soon as possible.
“This is my first serious injury and hopefully my last. It couldn’t have happened at a worse time as I’d had a really good spell during pre-season and was delighted to sign my deal.
“It’s quite cruel that I picked this injury up just two weeks after signing but that is football for you.”
