Tim Krul’s chances of progressing in the Scottish Cup were ended last night when Falkirk were beaten 3-1 by Aberdeen, in a 4th round replay.
Tim Krul – 6’2″ goalkeeper injured saving penalty last night
Tim has been playing well in Scotland, and is well thought of at the Falkirk club. He’s so far made 21 appearances for the Scottish Premier club. He made an excellent save from a penalty near the end of the game last night, but in so doing he was injured. Itâ€™s a shoulder injury, but weâ€™re not sure how serious the injury is.
We donâ€™t know how long he will be out for, but Falkirk manager John Hughes is hopeful he can make a quick return.
John Hughes said after the game:
“It’s very disappointing. I really feel for him, it was a great save from the penalty, and fingers crossed it’s not too serious,”
“We’ll all support him and hopefully he makes a speedy recovery.”
Tim will miss a match where he would probably have been quite busy, as Falkirk are due to meet Celtic at home on Saturday.
Letâ€™s hope Tim can make a quick recovery and get straight back playing for Falkirk, where he is gaining very valuable experience this season. His loan spell runs through the end of this season, and Tim is another one of our talented up and coming youngsters at the club.
