CHRIS Turner is fighting to get himself fit for this Saturday’s Scottish Cup tie at Pittodrie and is looking forward to the experience.
CT, as the powerhouse midfielder is known, has been battling an ankle injury that saw him limp off against Livingston last month in a midweek game arranged ironically to give him game time following a lay-off through suspension.
Boss Ian Murray had been hopeful of having the services of the Northern Irishman against Raith Rovers a fortnight ago and said as much at his meet the manager session before the Falkirk victory 3 weeks past.
But Turner aggravated the original injury in training meaning that his progress back into the first team squad was halted.
However, former Dumbarton gaffer Jim Fallon who is a top physio now working with the SFA at Hampden, has been in charge of Turner’s rehabilitation and is hopeful that he can take part at Pittodrie.
Turner said : “It was perhaps too early to make my comeback against Raith, but I’m hopeful that I can be involved at Aberdeen.
“It’s a huge game for the club and the players are looking forward to the experience.”
Fingers crossed for Chris!
