Manager's Programme Notes

Today we start the second quarter of our Premier League pro gramme by welcoming Hibs to Dens Park. It is their first visit in the Premier League and if our encounters with them last season are anything to go by it should be a very entertaining game this after noon.

To say our first quarter of the League programme has been di appointing is to put it mildly. It has been a great disappointment to all at Dens Park and although it may not be obvious, a lot of hard work and effort has been put into rectifying faults which have occurred since our step up from the First Division.

We have had a lot of praise heaped on us by other clubs, but praise will not keep us in the Premier League, points will. So we must get two points today, although I am sure Hibs will have something to say about that.

Last week at Aberdeen we more than held our own against one of the better clubs in Scotland, but for a fatal period just before halftime we could have returned with a very satisfying result.

As many of you know, only one team in the League has scored more goals than we have, so I think we all know what we have to do in our attempts to get better results.

It is very difficult trying to rebuild a team at any time but it is even harder to attempt it in the Premier League.

Many supporters think promo tion came too early for us, but I do not agree with this view as I feel every opportunity that arrives in football must be taken and as pro motion presented itself to us last season we will just have to battle on in the top league and keep trying to rebuild the side. I must say our side is beginning to show a lot of promise with our youngsters coming through.
