Andrew Nelson is confident he will be fit to try and extend a stunning start to his Dundee career on Friday night.
The Dark Blues welcome Hibs to Dens Park, with the former Sunderland striker looking to continue goalscoring form that has seen him find the net four times in four starts.
The 21-year-old equalised against Livingston at the weekend but then had to limp off a few minutes later with a shin injury that had made him a pre-match doubt.
Asked whether it is likely to keep him out of the Hibs game, he replied: “No, it should just take a couple of days to settle down. That’s what I’m hoping.”
The 2-1 win in West Lothian has taken Dundee out of the bottom two on goal difference.
“It’s a great lift,” said Nelson.
“We know there’s still a long way to go but this is the start of it. We’ve picked up a massive three points.”
