Dundee trialist Adil Nabi has given Dens boss Neil McCann food for thought after notching in their 3-2 friendly defeat to Farense in Portugal.
The 24-year-old showed up well with glimpses of real quality before taking his goal well late on in Albufeira.
Sent through after good play from Paul McGowan, Nabi was composed to go around the goalkeeper and finish as he hopes to earn himself a deal at Dens Park.
Gaffer Neil said: “Nabi looked a wee bit off it in terms of the pace of the game because, unfortunately, he picked up an injury in training.
“He was curtailed a bit over here but you can see he’s got ability, especially in the final third.
“You can see he has a change of direction and an eye for a pass so we’ll continue having a look at Nabs and give him a fair crack where he gets a bit of condition and see where it goes.”
Fellow trialist Louis Nganioni set up Dundee’s first goal, cutting the ball back for Jack Lambert to fire into the net.
That was something Neil revealed they’d been working on in training the very morning of the game.
He added: “Louis did well. Believe it or not we worked on that very move in training yesterday morning.
“We trained hard the morning of the game and one of the things we did was the cutback for a midfielder coming in so it was nice that worked.
“He did OK.”
