Low in contention for squad

Midfielder Nicky Low is set to be included in the match day squad against Kilmarnock this Saturday for the first time this season after taking part in the Development League fixtures over the past few weeks.

Manager Paul Hartley told the press, “Nicky Low is in the squad for the first time in a while. He’s looked the part in the last few development games.”

“He’s had a tough time with injury. He’s like having a new player in the squad, he’s been working really hard and we’ve been impressed by him. He’s got to keep it going and if we can get him up to match fitness we have another good player to choose from.”

James Vincent and Michael Duffy will both miss the match through injury, while new signing Tom Hateley goes straight into the squad and Kevin Gomis is set for his home debut.

On the match against Kilmarnock, the manager said, “They had a good outing against Rangers in the their last game so we are expecting a tough game. Hopefully we can put a good all round performance in.”

“They have some good young players there, they have a lot of legs about them and we are expecting another tough game.”
