Ballymena United have been hit by the news that striker Cathair Friel broke his collar bone during training on Thursday night.

United’s top scorer - he has found the back of the net 18 times this season - will miss Saturday’s Danske Bank Premiership clash with Coleraine.

It also looks like Friel could miss the rest of United’s league campaign because of the injury. - which is a blow for boss David Jeffrey as Jude Winchester, Ryan Harpur, James Knowles, William Faulkner and Reece Glendinning will also miss Saturday’s league game against Coleraine because of injury.
