Dundee United have sent injured Danny Swanson to see a specialist in order to aid his recovery from ligament damage.
The 24-year-old playmaker has been out of the first-team picture for two months and a possible return remains uncertain.
United boss Peter Houston is keen for the lynchpin to be back at 100 per cent, although he will not be rushing him back into action.
"Danny Swanson is down at Lilleshall because he's not responding as well as we would like," Houston told the Courier.
"We have had a few players go down there in the past and it has worked well. Scott Robertson benefited from it so hopefully they will be able to help Danny out as well.
"Danny has hit the wall a wee bit on the way back from his injury and we're hoping this will kick him on again.
"You can't rush these things and we don't want to take any risks with twisting and turning, especially in these wintry conditions.
"It will also be good for his peace of mind because he needs to know that he's getting back to 100 per cent again. We have missed his creativity in the team a bit but we won't be pushing him before he's ready."
