Acupuncture for international footballer's injury
Andy Webster is having #acupuncture in an attempt to make the starting line-up for the Scottish Cup semi-final meeting with Raith Rovers. The Dundee United and Scotland defender, who has been in magnificent form since arriving on-loan from Rangers at the start of the season, feared he was about to suffer a calf tear so asked to be substituted during the win over St Johnstone on Monday night. Webster’s calf has caused him problems for most of the season but a scan on Tuesday showed no lasting damage and instead pointed to a nerve problem in his back. The 27-year-old was given acupuncture in an effort to ensure he will be fit for the weekend (source: Herald).
