While injuries across the city have hit the headlines in the past 12 months, it hasn't exactly been plain sailing at Easter Road as this gallery will testify to.

The speedy winger injured his meniscus while on international duty with Australia at the beginning of the year and didn't return until July.
The goalkeeper's career at Easter Road was effectively ended by a head knock suffered in a Scottish Cup game against Elgin City in January. He spent two months battling the effects of a concussion.
