Very few players have done it. 

But when it comes to backroom staff, people can be easily forgiven for crossing the city divide. 

That's exactly what is happening in Dundee, as the Dens Park club looks to solve their pitch issues.

The Dark Blues are currently being investigated by the SPFL after their pitch led to four postponements in the City of Discovery this season. 

The latest was a little under two weeks ago, prior to the international break, when their live Sky TV clash with Rangers was called off less than two hours before kick-off.

Dundee's long-standing groundsman Brian Robertson and his son, also named Brian, were dismissed earlier this season.

Now, they have taken the first steps to fixing their pitch woes, by snapping up Dundee United's groundsman, Paul Murray.

It is understood Murray has handed in his notice at Tannadice and will begin working at Dens, famously situated on the same road, in the summer.

In the meantime, Dundee has enlisted the help of Premier League partners Burnley and specialist turf company Allgrass to keep on top of their pitch problems.

It's an away game up next for Tony Docherty's side this weekend as they make the short trip to Perth to face St Johnstone.

Jordan McGhee is back in contention for the visitors, something that pleased manager Tony Docherty no end.

The boss said: “He’s ahead of schedule but that’s typical Jordan McGhee. He’s such a brilliant pro. He is low maintenance, and high output.

“Jordan has trained this week and is available for Saturday so credit to him and his professionalism.

“Credit also to the medical team – when everyone else had a break, they were all in helping the injured players and they’ve got them back for me which I’m delighted by that.

“Jordan has had a really consistent season for me. He scored the winner in our last game against St Johnstone and he’s been great.

“He is such a brilliant pro and is typical of the senior pros I have here. Jordan just gets on with the job and is a leader on the pitch.

“I’m delighted to have him back and it’s credit to his professionalism that he is back way before the scheduled date.”
