Sam's injury relief

13th February 2015

Midfielder reflects on last weekend's horror tackle.

Sam Nicholson has declared himself fit to face Livingston tomorrow after admitting he was lucky to escape serious injury against the Lions last weekend.

The 20-year-old was left dazed and bloodied after a shocking challenge from Jason Talbot on the stroke of half-time at the Energy Assets Arena.

Speaking for the first time about the tackle in an exclusive interview for tomorrow's Matchday Programme, Sam said: "Looking back, I was lucky not to suffer a more serious injury.

"It was a terrible tackle but it's done now and my focus is on my game and not what others do.

"I'm feeling a lot better now and am ready to go again if the manager asks me to."
