KEVIN KO'D BY PRAWN; Brown Fears for Gallacher after Food Bug Strikes


Traynor, James, Daily Record (Glasgow, Scotland)


Scotland's main World Cup striker Kevin Gallacher has until Saturday to prove he has the stomach for battle.

A dodgy prawn sandwich on the journey across the Atlantic last week has laid Gallacher low and now he is running out of time to gain vital match practice.

Craig Brown is pinning his hopes on the Blackburn Rovers striker finding the net when our World Cup campaign begins against Brazil in Paris on June 10.

"He's certainly been in difficulty and the doctor had to give him two injections last Saturday because of his stomach pains."

Gallacher has not played a full 90 minutes for Scotland since the match against Latvia last year and already this year he has missed three games.

He was injured when Scotland lost to Denmark at Ibrox and was ill when we drew with Finland at Easter Road.

Then he missed the 2-2 draw with Colombia and last night he said: "I really wanted to get going in that match but I was too ill.

"I'd hoped I would have recovered after two or three days but the problem hasn't gone away and I'm not someone who can afford to lose weight because I don't carry any excess."

If Gallacher, whose goals were crucial in Scotland's qualifying campaign, should lose any more weight he will disappear, but now he is determined to recover in time to play in Washington. …
