Laharum’s quest for back-to-back Horsham District Football Netball League premiership flags has received another set-back, with star onballer Robbie Miller breaking a bone in his right leg.
The Laharum captain broke a fibula during his side’s 118-point win over Noradjuha-Quantong on Saturday.
It was the third major injury sustained by the Demons this year, with the reigning premiers also losing key senior footballers Sam Winfield and Ben Peucker.
While Winfield and Peucker, both with anterior-cruciate ligament injuries, are ruled out for the rest of the season, Miller is in a race against time to recover for finals.
Coach Shannon Argall said the club would know more following Miller’s appointment with a surgeon in Ballarat on Thursday.
“It depends how he goes with the surgeon and with recovery, but anyone who knows Robbie knows how determined he is,” he said. “He will be doing everything in his power to make it back for finals.”
Laharum is second on the ladder behind league newcomers Southern Mallee Giants, who in round four delivered the Mountain Men’s first loss since the 2014 grand final.
Jeparit-Rainbow is breathing down the Demons’ neck, four points behind in third place. With the top two teams to earn a week off ahead of finals, the Demons cannot afford to drop games.
Argall said his team would work on strengthening its midfield.
