Nicky Low could miss out on Dundee’s pre-season trip


Recommended Posts

Dundee midfielder Nicky Low faces a race against time to be fit for the start of the season.

The Dark Blues schemer went under the knife before the end of last season to rectify a foot and ankle problem which plagued his first campaign on the books at Dens Park.

And although he is on the recovery trail it is not certain he will be fit enough to take part in the club’s pre-season trip to Austria in a fortnight’s time.

If that were the case, it would render him a major doubt to be available when the Dark Blues kick off their season with a trip to East Fife in the League Cup group stages.

A more realistic return date for the 25-year-old former Aberdeen man is August 6, when Dundee start their league campaign with a trip back up the A9 to the Highlands, where they finished last season, in Dingwall.

“Nicky will take his time this summer,” said manager Paul Hartley, when asked about his versatile midfielder.

Low has been working on his own personal training regime since having the operation, and has been a regular on the training field with fellow-injured bodies James McPake and Paul McGowan.

Gaffer Paul has already revealed that McPake and McGowan will be missing from the League Cup.

It now looks as though the same could be said of Low.

Meanwhile, Paul has spoken about his ambitions in the cup this term.

At the start of last season he put progress in both the Scottish Cup and the League Cup as a priority.

He accepts the Dark Blues probably let their fans down on both counts.

Paul is determined for his players to not make the same mistake again.

He said: “It has been a long time (since a Scottish Cup win) and it is something we want to try to work on.

“It isn’t easy to win a cup and a lot of other clubs would say the same — that they want to win the Scottish Cup.

“It is always your best chance of winning silverware, the League Cup and the Scottish Cup.

“It has been far too long since Dundee won something.

“And we don’t hide from that in any way but there are a lot of key factors in winning a cup. It’s not an easy thing to do.

“You have to play well, first and foremost, and, as always, have a wee bit of luck sometimes.

“Either way, you have to earn victory.”
