“Lee has been a good part of the team since he came in and has done really well,” said the 18-year-old.
“He has bonded really well with the boys since he came in, but it’s just one of those things and the boys will overcome the situation I’m sure.
“The gaffer has explained the situation and we just have to accept it really.
“It’s hard for everyone, we are all in the same boat and need to be careful and that’s all you can really do.
“It’s something we can’t really control and it will happen at every club I’m sure.
“As long as me and the boys are sticking to the rules we will be fine.
“Lee has obviously done really well since he has been in. He has slotted into the right-back position like he has been there for years, so he is a big miss.”
On the Livingston game he added: “It’s a massive three points here.
“We are looking to get the result at the weekend and hopefully it goes our way.”
Boss Brian Rice was expecting a tough afternoon as they face Gary Holt’s side tomorrow.
“I expect it to be a normal match against Livingston,” said Rice. “Fiery against a good team.
“When you play Livingston people forget how good they are.
“They’ve got good players but people tend to get caught up in the physical side of it and go on about this long ball game; I’ve watched Livingston and they don’t play a long ball game all the time.
“They have some really good football players. I’ve worked with one or two of them and I know how good they are.
“They are very difficult to beat and really difficult to beat.
“It will be a very difficult game for us but it’s always difficult when you go to Livingston.”
