Manager's Programme Notes

It's certainly been quite a week!

It started with the reserves winning 3-2 (on Monday) and I thoroughly enjoyed that victory.

Then it was Rangers on Wednesday night and we fully know not what happened there.

Rangers on the night were superior to us but drawing the second-half 1-1 was a crumb of comfort nevertheless. Some players had trouble on the night to come to terms with the opposition, but I'm sure we've all learned lessons from the game. I certainly have!

And so to my first 'derby' in the Premier League and to a very important game for us. I'm not the person to go into the past about previous results - all that interests this club is where we're going now!

Dundee United are the team in form at this moment of time and will be formidable opponents. Possibly seen more of United than other teams. They are a fine side, a grand club and on 'song'!!

Yes, we have to be in tune' ourselves today because I know Jim McLean and Gordon Wallace will have done their homework well.
