Stuart McCall's side brought in Twardzik on emergency loan last month due to injuries to both Hollis and Gunnar Nielsen.

While Nielsen is fit again and should start in Saturday's SPL clash against Hearts, Hollis is continuing to struggle with his ankle.

If Hollis fails to recover, Motherwell assistant boss Kenny Black admits the club might go back in for Twardzik, who helped Well to win five games on the bounce to climb into the top three in the SPL before he returned to Dens Park last week.

Boost

Black told the Daily Record: "Dan did well for us but Gunnar is available again, which is a boost. We've also had a few problems with Lee and his ankle.

"If he doesn't recover, we might have to consider bringing Dan in again, depending on his situation at Dundee, or look elsewhere.

"We'll see how it goes between now and the weekend."

He added: "He seems to have a few good days and then he suffers a little bit of a reaction.

"We've given the players a few days off and we'll assess things as the week progresses."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
