QUEEN of the South are set to be without Sam Henderson for this weekend's league match after the goalkeeper was run over by a cow. 

The 19-year-old hurt his shoulder at his father's farm when the animal charged him down.

Henderson showed quick reflexes to get out of the way when the cow came at him for a second time, but Queens could now be forced to play Saturday's Championship clash against Dunfermline without a substitute keeper.

Assistant manager Dougie Anderson told the Scottish Sun: “Sam has missed training this week after being struck.

“It could have been worse as the cow ran at him for a second time but he managed to get out of the way.

“He has a sore shoulder so he is getting closely monitored and a lot of treatment as we do not want to go into the game without a goalkeeper on the bench.”

First choice goalkeeper Alan Martin is currently injured for the Doonhamers and Jack Leighfield started in goal during last weekend's 1-1 draw against Morton, with Henderson among the substitutes.
