Dundee could be facing the dire prospect of playing Hibs this weekend without a recognised first-choice striker.
The Dark Blues suffered their third straight Premiership defeat on Saturday against Aberdeen at Pittodrie.
A Stevie May double secured all three points for the Dons in a 2-1 victory with the former St Johnstone striker’s second stunning goal coming when Dundee were down to nine men.
Dark Blues front two of Faissal El Bakhtaoui and Marcus Haber had both been injured at the same time and had to be withdrawn with manager Neil McCann desperately trying to get substitutes on.
Before he could, May added insult to injury with his well-taken goal.
El Bakhtaoui had fallen to the turf clutching his hamstring while Haber appeared to have injured his thigh, with both looking to be in considerable pain as they hobbled to the sidelines.
McCann will now anxiously await news from his medical team on both with the manager already without front men Craig Wighton and Sofien Moussa who have undergone operations.
Meanwhile, Roarie Deacon who scored his side’s goal, insists that despite the poor start to the league campaign, no-one in the squad has lost faith in what they are trying to achieve.
He said: “We believe and know that we should be in a better position.
“The gaffer believes in all of us and we believe in ourselves.
“We have all bought in to what the gaffer has brought to the team and to the club.”
