Dundee have received a boost with the news that the facial injury suffered by goalie Elliott Parish during Saturday’s defeat by Rangers is not as bad as first feared.
The 27-year-old had to be replaced by young keeper Calum Ferrie in the 85th minute of the clash at Ibrox.
Parish, who started his career at Aston Villa, was left prostrate on the turf with blood streaming down his face after being accidentally caught by Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos’s boot.
At the time, it looked as though Dundee’s first-choice stopper could have suffered a serious injury however he has made a quick recovery and was back between the sticks yesterday at training as Neil McCann’s side begin preparations for the crunch post-split games that start a week on Saturday.
Midfielder Paul McGowan is suffering from a slight knock and missed the match at Ibrox however he should be available when the Dark Blues are next in action.
