Any chance of retaining the services of Marley Watkins look to be dashed, after the player returned to Bristol City and looks to be set to see out the remainder of the campaign down south.
The 30 year old forward scored twice for the Dons before a hamstring injury ruled him out.
Dean Holden has confirmed that Watkins will remain at Bristol City for the rest of the season, as he looks to recover from his knock.
“Yes, he has [returned]. He’ll be back rehabilitating with us,” confirmed Holden.
“He got a hamstring injury up at Aberdeen and was performing really well, becoming an integral part of their team. Unfortunately he picked up this injury and he’s back with us to rehabilitate and we’ll go from there.
“His period of rehabilitation is going to take him beyond the loan window closing. So Marley will be back with us and will rehab with us and then we’ll assess when he’s back fit if he can rejoin the squad,” he said.
