Manager's Programme Notes


I have no doubt that tonight's encounter with Airdrie will be classed as a proverbial 'four pointer', however I think that it is a little bit early in the season to be thinking in those terms.

However, from our stance it is very important that we begin to narrow the gap which exists between ourselves and Airdrie by winning tonight's match. Since our last home outing against Kilmarnock we have spent a lot of time on the training ground working on the sharpness of the players in terms of sprints and reaction work.

At the time of writing this column which is before our visit to Ayr United last Saturday our confidence is in need of a boost and it is amazing how quickly that can come about after a couple of good results.

We, the coaching staff at Dens, must instil more self belief into the players who themselves must also work harder to believe in themselves.

It is a pleasure to welcome my former colleague and friend, Jim Bone to Dens Park this evening. Jimmy's side have got off to a truly wonderful start to the new season, but I sincerely hope that we can check that unbeaten run in what promises to be one of the best matches of this season's First Division programme.
