Hibs dealt Fletcher injury blow
Steven Fletcher is helped off at Easter Road
Fletcher faces two months on the sidelines
Hibernian striker Steven Fletcher faces two months on the sidelines after a scan confirmed he has suffered ankle ligament damage.

The 20-year-old sustained the injury during Saturday's 1-1 Premier League draw with Falkirk.

Fletcher has netted eight goals this season and secured his place as a first-team regular.

The forward agreed a contract extension at Easter Road earlier this month and will miss the club's festive schedule.

Hibs have struggled recently, winning just one of their last eight games, scoring seven goals in the process.

"Fletcher is a key player," said Collins after the game at the weekend.

"He has been outstanding for us this season and of course it's a blow.

"It is part and parcel of football and it happens at most clubs. We just have to deal with it."
