Dundee’s injury concerns appear to be easing with the news striker Sofien Moussa is back in contention for Saturday’s home game against Hearts.
Also in with a shout of taking part in the contest is fellow forward Marcus Haber after he returned to training following his thigh problem picked up in the defeat to Aberdeen over a month ago.
Manager Neil McCann is delighted to have targetman Moussa back available after taking no risks on his knee problem last week at Kilmarnock.
And, if Haber is OK to play, the Dens gaffer is more than happy to have a tough choice between his front men.
He said: “Moussa is back in full training and should be OK for the weekend which is a big bonus.
“With the artificial surface last week and his knee injury I don’t think he would have been comfortable with it.
“Marcus is almost there, it’s whether we take a risk on him. He’s back training and I’ve got a decision there to make.
“Having both back would be great because we’ve got options there if we want to be direct but we’re still assessing Marcus whether we risk him.”
Another Neil was reluctant to take a risk on last weekend was midfielder Paul McGowan, who picked up a slight groin problem before the Killie game.
Neil added: “I’m pleased to say the boys look as if they are back firing again and we don’t have too many upset from last weekend’s game.
“McGowan is back training but he’s another we’re keeping an eye on.
“Because we have a bit of strength in the squad, we can afford not to take any huge risks. What we do have is an international break afterwards so if we wanted to push someone there’s time to recover.”
