Ross Burton Presser

Dylan McGeouch has picked up another knock and is a doubt for Burton. However, Aiden McGeady may make an appearance on the bench and Denver Hume and Jack Baldwin should shake off their injuries in time to be available for selection. Jack Ross said: “We’ve had a couple of issues with Denver and Jack, but they’ve trained today and they’re okay. We’ve got a slight concern with Dylan, but it’s only really Duncan (Watmore) now on the long-term list. Aiden has joined in training this week. He’s been out for four months, so he’ll be out for a little while yet, but he feels that joining in with us will accelerate his progress quicker. They were tough sessions, so we’re definitely getting closer in terms of having him available.”

Ross also commented on the Papy Djilobodji farce. “As I’ve said all along, it hasn’t really affected me directly,” said Ross. “His (Djilobodji) absence means I haven’t really had to deal with anything around him. It didn’t really impact on me, although a lot of people have worked extremely hard to try to find a resolution. From my perspective, it’s been relatively straight-forward. I don’t want to talk about the specifics because I don’t want to prejudice anything moving forward, but there are clearly lessons for the club to look back on. It probably reflects a sea change we want to enact in every aspect of the club, and how we conduct ourselves moving forward. There are so many different facets to a football club, and it’s in a good learning experience in terms of making sure we don’t find ourselves in a similar position in the future. We don’t want to find ourselves in a similar scenario again.”
