Dundee striker Andrew Nelson is optimistic he will be available for the Dark Blues’ upcoming clash against Hibernian.

Nelson scored for Dundee in their 2-1 win over Livingston, but had to go off with a shin problem. However, he is confident he will make the Hibernian clash.

“It should just take a couple of days to settle down. That’s what I’m hoping” he told The Courier, whilst discussing his injury.

Nelson has been one of the key men for the Dens Park club in their resurgence up the table

He has scored four goals in six games since joining from Sunderland in January. His goals have helped moved Jim McIntyre’s side five points clear of the relegation zone, and they should be looking ahead to the Hibs game with confidence.

It will be an intriguing game at Dens Park on Friday night, as Dundee, who are in good form, will be coming up against a Hibernian team under new management.

Paul Heckingbottom’s first game in charge was a comfortable 2-0 win over Hamilton, but he should find it more difficult against a Dundee team with their tails up.

Should Dundee manage to stay up then Jim McIntyre deserves plenty of credit, particularly for his transfer business conducted in January, and Nelson has proven to be one of his best signings so far.
