DONS winger Jamie Smith has suffered yet another injury scare.

 

Manager Jimmy Calderwood today confirmed Smith missed Saturday’s SPL clash with Hearts because of a calf injury.

 

Smith had just returned to action after suffering a calf injury in August.

 

The former Celtic man has been plagued by injuries since joining the Dons.

 

Calderwood admitted Smith is a major doubt for Saturday’s home clash with Kilmarnock.

 

“I’m not confident Jamie will be fit but we will give him every chance,†said Calderwood.

 

“He said his calf muscle was feeling a bit tight after training on Thursday.

 

“I considered leaving Jamie at home, but he was determined to be involved at Tynecastle, so travelled down to Edinburgh.

 

“Jamie took part in a light training session on the morning of the game and it was clear he wouldn’t be able to feature.

 

“It’s a shame because he has been working so hard and is desperate to do his bit.

 

“I’m hoping he will only be out for a week, but we won’t be taking any risks with him.â€

 

The Dons boss is delighted with the way his men fought their corner in the thrilling 1-1 draw at Tynecastle.

 

Calderwood is now looking for them to back that up with a win over third-placed Killie to record their first Pittodrie victory of the campaign.

 

“The point against Hearts took us further up the table and sets us up nicely for the Kilmarnock game,†he said.

 

“The knowledge we could cut the gap between the side in third place to just two points will fire us up.

 

“The memories of the way Killie knocked us out of the League Cup earlier this season are also still fresh.

 

“You can be sure that will be mentioned in the build-up. We can’t wait for Saturday’s game to come.

 

“Hearts had won three of their four home games so far, yet we were unlucky not to beat them.

 

“We have every reason for believing we will finally end our wait for a home win.

 

“We’ve let our fans down too often at Pittodrie already this season.

 

“It’s vital we get them back on our side and the only way we can do that is to win on Saturday.â€
