Manager's Programme Notes


We play Hearts today in our last League match of the season in front of what should be a bumper crowd. Both sides have everything to play for and the big crowd will create an atmosphere that will lift both sets of players.

The result at Parkhead last Saturday saw us lose some ground in our fight towards a place in Europe. From early on we were up against it at Parkhead, although at one stage we looked capable of picking up at least one point. After the sending off it was always going to be difficult to hold out. The players were disappointed by the result but know what they must do today.

Hearts have had a very good season and this is due to their overall teamwork and commitment. They are a hard working side who are solid at the back, work hard in midfield and are mobile up front. The Hearts management team have refused to accept that they are League Champions until it is proven beyond doubt. It is this commonsense approach plus their general teamwork that has brought Hearts this close to a possible double.

I was very pleased that Robert Connor gained his first International Cap on Tuesday against Holland. He is a player who is capable of playing in the International arena and now that he has a toe-hold it is up to him to make progress in the International Squad. His selection is also a credit to Dundee Football Club.

FINALLY, FROM ALL AT DENS WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT THROUGHOUT THE SEASON AND HOPE THAT YOU HAVE ENJOYED YOUR FOOTBALL. WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR CONTINUING SUPPORT NEXT SEASON.
