Manager's Programme Notes


This evening we welcome Rangers to Dens Park for the third time this season. On the two previous occasions we have lost by the odd goal, so tonight we will be all out to reverse this trend.

Rangers have had many critics recently but are once again in the cup final and as they are at present Scottish Cup and League Cup holders, they are not nearly as bad a team as many people would have us believe they are.

Much of the criticism directed at them is unfortunate. They are third in the league.

So, as I have said recently, it is points for glory for Rangers and points for survival for Dundee this evening.

A good result at Paisley on Saturday has made our position a little bit stronger and we hope to continue in the same direction this evening.

Our away results have been very good recently whereas our home performances have been a great disappointment. It is something we must go all out to rectify.

We have to win our home games. This is vital to our survival in the Premier League.

The past weeks have seen ups and downs with injuries at Dens Park with lan Fleming, Danny Cameron, Stuart McKimmie, lain Ferguson, Les Barr and lain MacDonald all being out through injury or illness.

This has not helped team selection but, as I have always said, football is a tough game and we must expect injuries. There is no use complaining about it, we must get our sleeves rolled up and battle on for the remaining seven matches, starting tonight with two points from Rangers!
