John Kennedy has admitted current first choice goalkeeper Scott Bain is suffering from a hand problem.

And that could open the door to a return for the £5m man signed from AEK Athens in the summer window.

"It gives us a chance to look at a few, but at the same time we want to still finish the season off well and with good performances."
