Ross County manager Jim McIntyre has confirmed striker Liam Boyce will be out for a month with a broken hand.
The Northern Irishman suffered the injury in the 3-2 win over Kilmarnock.
"Obviously it's a blow, 17 goals in 24 games is a hell of a stat," McIntyre told BBC Scotland.
"But we've got two capable strikers who have been itching to get a start. They've got to take their chance. It's an opportunity for them now to show what they can do."
