Manager's Programme Notes

Over the piece, our last three home games, where we have unfortunately dropped two points, have not had a lack of goals nor entertainment and this can only be good for the fans. Unfortunately a lot of goals, nine to be precise were against us and this is not a good statistic. This tendency to lose goals is something which we are obviously trying to rectify. On the other hand we have scored twelve goals and this is a pleasing factor of our play.

Our last home game saw the debut of Tommy Coyne and Keith Wright both of whom made a telling contribution to the match. The signing of these two players plus the return to fitness of Ross Jack will supply competition for forward places in the team. This type of com petition is something that we need in the Club and we must look to having a number of players competing for places.

Unfortunately the attendances at our last three home games has been disappointing. I am hopeful with our recent signings and our recent goal sprees that the crowds will soon return.

Today we welcome our visitors Hibs who up until now have had a very indifferent season. Even so, they are still a very good side and with the acquisition of new backroom staff they will be a difficult side to beat. I would like to wish Alex Miller and his backroom staff all the best in their new job but hope that they leave Dens empty handed this after noon. Due to printing deadlines I am not in a position to comment on last Saturday's match at Brockville against Falkirk.

Today is our last game of 1986 and we can look forward to a local derby to herald in 1987. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy festive period and wish you all the best for 1987.
