Dundee manager James McPake says he’s hopeful Danny Mullen’s injury is ‘not too bad’ after a 2-2 draw with West Ham United.
The English Premier League side provided a stern test for McPake’s newly-promoted cinch Premiership team, going 2-0 up before West Ham United pulled the game level. Mullen left the Dens Park turf injured in the first half with an ankle problem but McPake is hoping he’s ok.
He said: “The only disappointment was Danny Mullen’s injury. We thought we had got through pre-season injury free but we’ll get that scanned. With a bit of luck it’s not too bad. We are going up a level. No disrespect to the Championship but we’re going up a pretty big gulf in class in league terms.
“We need to be ready for that and playing West Ham United will have helped that. They are a very good team, we saw their quality and the problems they can cause you. West Ham caused us a lot of problems and that’s good because we need to find ways to deal with that.
“We’ll get asked a lot more questions in the Premiership this season than we did in the Championship. I thought the players were excellent and they have been since the first day of pre-season. It is about fitness but you want good performances and to see what you’ve been working on.”
