ULSTER WILL BE without the services of Craig Gilroy and Luke Marshall for this weekend’s meeting with Glasgow Warriors.

Les Kiss and his side will be aiming for their fourth consecutive Guinness Pro12 victory of the season at Scotstoun Stadium on Friday evening [7.35pm].

According to an injury update issued by Ulster today, Gilroy sustained a toe muscle injury during his impressive display in last Friday’s 19-8 win against Scarlets, which could keep him out of action for the next fortnight.

Marshall, who came off the bench in the 63rd minute of Friday’s game at Kingspan Stadium, will follow the return-to-play protocol after sustaining a concussion. Kyle McCall is also doubtful for the trip to Scotland due to a side abdominal injury he picked up in training last week.

Andrew Trimble’s first appearance of the season has been put back for another week as a result of a slight foot injury, while Dan Tuohy and Tommy Bowe “should soon be available for selection” as they near the end of their rehabilitation following ankle and knee injuries respectively.

Paul Marshall [rib injury] and Dave Shanahan [sternoclavicular joint] are both back in training. Jacob Stockdale [toe] is estimated to be two weeks away from a return to action. Jonny Simpson [ankle], Johnny Murphy [groin] and Ricky Lutton [groin] should be available in two-to-three weeks.

Chris Henry [shoulder] and Wiehahn Herbst [groin] are both six weeks away from being ready to play. Marcell Coetzee [knee] is expected to make his Ulster debut in January, but no date has yet been set for the return of Peter Nelson [foot].
