It's very pleasing to reflect on our latest good victory which we achieved at Easter Road on Saturday.
It was a good steady performance although we could be doing with scoring more goals. Saturday's win was was the latest in a series of single goal victories which continues our good run and sets us up nicely for this afternoon's Cup-tie with Celtic.
Everyone at the club is naturally delighted we've been doing so well lately and our showing at Easter Road underlined once again that we are becoming a lot more resilient as a team.
Perhaps we played better football earlier in the season when we didn't manage to get the results we were after but now our approach is certainly paying off.
WE'VE BECOME A LOT MORE SENSIBLE ABOUT OUR PLAY AND A LOT LESS RECKLESS.
And it seems to be working as it's a long time since this club last enjoyed a run like this. But we're making sure no one is getting carried away and we're all aware that there is still a lot of work to be done before we can claim to be be the finished article.
Scottish Cup week will always have a very special place in our football and we are additionally fortunate to be housing the tie of the day with the visit of Celtic.
They are a team expected to win something every season and that is reflected in the high quality of their players.
Today's game can't come quick enough for our players - they're all enjoying their football and they're battling really well which augers well for Cup-tie football.
This match is what football is all about. We'll have a full house, a great atmosphere, lots of first-class players and the prize of a place in the Cup semi-final for the victors.
This is the kind of big occasion match I've often referred to and as far as I'm concerned the more of these we have at Dens the happier I'll be.
It's great for the players, too, because they're in the entertainment business and every entertainer loves to play before packed houses.
This is the lifeblood for players everywhere and it should guarantee us a cracking match this afternoon.
