Manager's Programme Notes

Today we welcome Morton Football Club to Dens Park and as they are the first Premier League side to visit Dens this season our welcome is a warm one.

After our disappointing result against Raith Rovers last Saturday there was more disappointment at Ibrox on Wednesday evening and we have still to win our first point as a Premier League side.

I feel that in the Raith Rovers game we allowed ourselves to be hustled out of our rhythm and this should not happen. As the local Press was quick to point out, this is a lesson that must not go unheeded and will not go unheeded by the staff. But the players. are the people who matter and they must realise that when teams come to Dens Park they will be very keen to knock us out of our stride. q

I am not a great believer in physical football but it is a part of the game and we must learn to stand up for ourselves and take the rough with the smooth.

A pleasing factor from the first games has been the way our new signings have fitted in and we know they will be great assets to Dundee Football Club.

Back to today's visitors who have a reputation as a good Premier League zir to and side who can cause us many problems this afternoon which we must overcome. They have characters in their side such as Andy Ritchie; Neil Orr, who has been a good servant, and Roy Baines, a goalkeeper who is among the best in the business. All this means we will get a very good test.
