Dundee could very well be heading into their crunch match with Hamilton this Saturday without their number nine Sofien Moussa.
Moussa only lasted for the opening four minutes of the defeat to Motherwell, having to come off with a calf injury. This gives the gaffer Neil McCann a potential selection headache as the Tunisian seemed to be picking up a bit of form and finally starting to find the back of the net.
“We worked on something all week and Moussa went off early.
“He was carrying it but felt it was OK and we felt it was OK but it’s obviously just gone on him.
“We had to change things and it took A-Jay a wee while to get into the game but once he started protecting the ball it allowed us to get up in the game and create.
“We played a wee bit wider with Simon Murray and Craig Wighton and I felt we were getting joy, I thought Simon looked dangerous.”
With goals hard to come by in the Dark Blues starting XI, if Moussa is ruled out then McCann may look to replace him with A-Jay Leitch-Smith who has found himself on the bench lately and only found the back of the net just six times.
Another option would be Cedwyn Scott who made his first team debut at the weekend for the Dee. The youngster signed from Huddersfield Town this season and has been knocking them in so far for the development team.
McCann will obviously be hoping that Moussa recovers from his injury but if not, he may decide to push Murray down the middle with A-Jay taking up his position out wide.
In other news this week, the club announced yesterday that season ticket sales had broken through the 1800 barrier.
Season tickets had only been on sale for twenty days prior to this announcement but considering the league position and precarious situation the club find themselves in with a week of crunch ties that will either see them safe or in the bottom two come the end of the season, the fans have backed the club in numbers.
