Manager's Programme Notes

Today we have another local derby. It is always good to welcome our neighbours from down the road.

On occasions in the past, we seem to have been very good hosts to them at Dens Park but today! hope that, while still being good hosts, we do not add icing to the cake by allowing them to leave with two points.

After a very good result at Firhill last week, today's game has become even more crucial for Dundee Football Club. Hopefully we can widen the gap between ourselves and the clubs below us in the league.

Our first half performance at Firhill was very satisfying in many ways but unfortunately in the second half we crept back into bad old habits which could have cost us dear. Our defence has taken a lot of stick this season and on occasions this has been justified, but on Saturday they more than earned their bonuses with several outstanding performances.

There have been many good games between Dundee and Dundee United over the past 20 years, some offering great entertainment. Some of our supporters won't let me forget I was often involved on the "other side." It is good to see things from both sides and I feel the rivalry between Dundee and Dundee United, although very keen and often intense, remains on the field.

The supporting behaviour of both sets of supporters at these games is another encouraging feature of the derbies, although rivalry on the field is always obvious.

It is important for Dundee in our present position that we get some thing from this derby. Points are very valuable to us.

I would think that by Dundee United's high standards this has been a bit of a disappointing season for them They were in the final of the League Cup and the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup and the U.E.F.A. Cup. Unfortunately, all these things have slipped away and they must concentrate on the league. They will be very keen to get points today to help them on their way to a place in Europe again next season.

A few weeks ago, I criticised some Dens Park supporters for their impatience in our game against Aberdeen. The support we were given in the following game against Hibs was tremendous and helped in no small way to us coming back into the game and gaining a very valuable point.
