Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is delighted that Craig Bryson has overcome the injury problems he had at the very start of his Dons career.

The summer signing from Derby had to deal with an ankle injury in the summer. However, he is now on his way back to full fitness.

He played in both the Europa League draw against Chikhura Sachkhere, and in the recent Betfred Cup win over Dundee.

McInnes can’t contain his joy that one of Aberdeen’s key signings in recent years is now ready to kick on.

“Great to get him on the pitch”

“We know what we are going to get from Craig this season and it was great to get him on the pitch” McInnes said, as reported by the Press and Journal.

“It was also great to take him off when we had planned without any injury concern. We work towards the next game now.”

So far, Bryson has yet to complete a 90 minutes since joining the Dons. It would be a real boost for the Pittodrie club if he manages this against Kilmarnock on Sunday.

May be too soon to play 90 minutes

That might be too soon for Bryson. Still, even if he plays 70 minutes at Rugby Park it will be good news for Aberdeen.

The Dons know they will have a tough test against a Kilmarnock side coming off the back of a recent win against Hamilton.

They will need to improve on their recent performances if they are to pick up the three points. Having Bryson available will certainly help the Dons with their chances of winning in the league for the second time this season.
