Manager's Programme Notes

Earlier this week we suffered our first defeat of the season at the hands of a very experienced Stenhousemuir side. It was a very disappointing performance even allowing for the very inexperienced make up of our side.

When you have so many youngsters in the side, you can expect to get inconsistent performances, but what was worrying was that only one or two of them showed the appetite for game that we would expect. In the end we only got we deserved and I hope that it is a lesson which the players take on board.

A sad note to the evening was Mark Hutchison sustaining a broken leg. He had been doing well and could be out for some time and I am sure you will all join with me in wishing him a speedy recovery.

There is no better way to put thoughts of that defeat aside than a derby match as we have this afternoon. It is a derby with added spice. It is the first genuine derby for some time and, of course, both clubs have high expectations in the promotion race.

Because of the time lapse in our meetings with United, there will be an awful lot of players playing in a Dundee derby for the first time. No doubt by the end, it will have alerted the newcomers what to expect, but beforehand, I am sure there will be nervousness in both camps.

No matter that the personnel may have changed with so much at stake, this bound to be a typically closely flight derby in every other respect.
