  • Dundee and Sunderland Link Helping Aid Davies Recovery.

    The ties between Dundee and Sunderland continue as Andrew Davies uses Sunderland's faculties to help aid him in his recovery from injury.

    Many people could be forgiven if they have forgotten that we signed former Ross County and Hartlepool defender during the January transfer window. The big centre-half broke his foot just days after signing for Dundee back in January in a bounce game against St Johnstone.

    The Dundee Boss has revealed that Andrew Davies rehab is being helped after Sunderland boss Jack Ross granted him use of the facilities at the Stadium of Light.

    McIntyre said: “Dav is back running and has made a lot of progress over the last couple of weeks. “Sunderland gave us permission to use their anti-gravity machine which has helped bring him on and we are thankful to Jack for letting him use that facility for 10 days.

    “It has helped, but he is over six weeks now and I think it will be seven weeks on Thursday. He is where we expect him to be but hopefully he shaves a week off it.

    “Eight to 10 weeks was the schedule but Dav being Dav he is telling me it is going to be sooner than that because he is desperate to get out there. We don’t want any reoccurrence but it is pinned so there shouldn’t be.”

    Davies is working hard in the gym along with another injury victim, goalie Jack Hamilton who is recovering from a finger op.

    Jack Hamilton is still recovering for his operation on his finger and is currently in training along side Andrew Davies.

    McIntyre said: “Jack is coming along fine and had the wire taken out of his finger last week. He wasn’t allowed to sweat at all with it because of the type of injury it is so it heals but now he is keeping Andrew company at the moment. They have been doing a lot of work together on the bikes. They are doing a bit of running on the training ground as well and it is great to see both nearly coming back.”

    Josh Meekings is still struggling to recover from his hip surgery and looks certain to be out for the rest of the season.

    McIntyre stated: “Josh is still with the physio. He is having a real tough time of it. We have put another injection in it to see if it would help him settle because he was feeling sore again during the rehab. So we will see if that settles it down but I really feel for Josh as it has been a long road for him.

    “We just have to make sure we are there to support him.”

      Robson was a transfer deadline day signing for Jim McIntyre as he looked to turn around the Dark Blues fortunes in the league and it was one that the midfielder was eager to accept.

      Making his debut in the one-all draw with Hamilton but he was forced off after 61-minutes and with an injury and missed the Kilmarnock match a few days later. He made his comeback this weekend in our 2-1 victory over Livingston but was an unused substitution.

      Despite his career up North not getting off to the start he would have liked, Robson spoke to his parent club’s website safc.com bout how his move to Dens came around and how important it is for him to be paying first-team football.

      “I’m hoping to get some more experience and first-team games under my belt,” said Robson.
      “The chance to play in some big games was obviously a big draw because it’s been difficult so far this season having been injured.
      “Hopefully the experience will stand me in good stead for the rest of my career and importantly next season.
      “I’m looking to play as much as I can now for the rest of season as I have been very unlucky with injuries.
      “I know how important it is to be playing men’s football at this stage of my career - it’s what I want to be doing and I can only benefit from it.
      “Having spoken to the gaffer (Jack Ross), Potts (John Potter) and Fowl (James Fowler) about loan moves, we agreed this would be a good move for me. There’s a lot of important games coming up in Dundee’s schedule so it will be a great experience.
      “It’s been good so far and I’m really enjoying being up there with Andrew Nelson. All the lads have been great with me and I’m really looking forward to the challenge ahead.”

      The announcement of 34-year-old Andrew Davies seemed imminent following his mutual release from Hartlepool a few days ago and he now joins up with Jim McIntyre who he played under at Ross County on an 18 month deal

      He was joined by Seny Dieng who completed a loan move until the end of the season from English Championship side Queens Park Rangers.

      In other Dundee news, Lewis Spence left the club last night and today signed for Championship leaders Ross County.

      English Premier League outfit Sunderland are keeping tabs on Dundee’s prize asset Craig Wighton.
      The 17-year-old striker is on loan at Brechin and made his starting debut at the weekend for Ray McKinnon’s side.
      He produced a sparkling display with a superb assist for his new club’s second goal in the derby win over Forfar.
      The Black Cats had a representative in the stands watching the game and they also intend to run the rule over Wighton when City play Ayr this weekend.
      Sunderland see Scotland as a potentially lucrative market to tap into and last season tried unsuccessfully to lure Dundee United teenager John Souttar to Wearside.
      Meanwhile, Courier Sport understands that Southampton have not made a bid for Wighton. A report yesterday suggested that the Saints had tabled a “substantial six- figure†offer after having him watched by their scouts. However, The Courier has learned that no bid has been made by Southampton for Wighton.
