Dundee’s young goal hero Matty Henvey’s joy was short-lived on Saturday as he picked up a knee injury that will keep him out of tonight’s Scottish Cup replay at Inverness.

Henvey became the first player born after 2000 to score for the Dark Blues when he grabbed a real poacher’s effort to level the scores at Hamilton.

However, as they chased the winner, Henvey was caught by a high tackle from Accies midfielder Darian MacKinnon. The tackle ended MacKinnon’s game but has also damaged Henvey’s knee.

It’s a real shame for the striker after grabbing his first senior goal but the club are hopeful he’s not kept out for too long.

Also out is Marcus Haber, who is fit but hasn’t trained following a back problem while there are doubts over both Josh Meekings and Paul McGowan.

Manager Neil McCann said: “Meekings is struggling with a thigh strain.

“Paul McGowan came off with a knock on Saturday.

“The good news is Roarie Deacon and Lewis Spence are back in the squad.”
