Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has disclosed some promising news on the injury front for Dons fans. He has revealed that Scott Wright might make his return to the Aberdeen squad to face Dundee United on Saturday.

The 23-year-old has been out of action for over a month with a hernia injury. However, he could bolster the Dons squad against Dundee United should he come through training unscathed.

“He’s got a chance”

“He’s got a chance which is brilliant news for us, the intention is for him to join in on full training. If he trains Thursday and Friday he can be part of our squad” he said (Daily Record).

“It would be a huge boost as we’ve been stretched for numbers so to be able to bolster those options would be great, We don’t know what tomorrow will bring in terms of injuries and suspensions. So anyone who can bolster the numbers for the United game will be great” he concluded.

It would be too much to expect Wright to start against Dundee United. However, as McInnes says it would be a real boost for the team if he can even appear on the bench for Aberdeen.

Been a regular up until injury

Wright had been a regular in the Aberdeen side until he suffered his injury. Indeed, in his last game, he scored in the 2-0 win over Hibernian. If he had been fit, you imagine that he would have started most games for the club.

Now he looks set to return sooner rather than later. That can only be good news for Aberdeen during a very busy run of fixtures.
