DUMBARTON striker Christian Nadé returned from a five week injury absence to help his side reach the Scottish Cup fourth round, and he’s hopeful he’ll be back to full fitness soon.
The Frenchman said: “I’m just not 100% yet, I’ve still got a bit of pain but it’s much better than it was. I’ve been injured since almost the beginning of the season, but you don’t want to stop, so you just do more and more and so on before you have to stop it.
“I’m doing a bit of work with the physio after every session, so I’ll be happy if I’m ready in a couple of weeks.”
Nadé’s return to fitness comes as Dumbarton return to Ladbrokes Championship action with a trip to face Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park this Saturday. Previewing the trip he said: “I think Dunfermline are the only team this season who were much, much better than us in the first game, even though we finished with ten against eleven, so we want to redeem ourselves and try to get a result there.”
He was also full of praise for team-mate Dimitris Froxylias, following his call-up to the Cypriot national team earlier this month. He continued: “Dimi is a good player and he’s also a good friend. He bring something different to the team so he’s been great for us.”
