Off the bottom - bain great form today and deserves the credit for the point. We know our issues but at least we have got a point at last and I reckon we can definitely get something off gers

Good point but very nervy. Hibs will be disappointed at not getting three points however Bain was at his absolute best. 

Elbak, I'm afraid, is miles out his depth in this league. The search for a striker has to continue.

Pity we couldn't keep up some of the intensity and forward movement of the first 10 minutes and we let hibs into the game after the goal but Bain was excellent and it was a hard fought point. Off the bottom and hopefully get that striker and get rid of Vincent.

An injury-ravaged Dundee side battled to their first point of the season against a strong Hibs side to climb off the bottom of the table. I'm fairly satisfied with that.

Scotty showing once again what an outstanding keeper he is.

Good to get a point today against a very good Hibs side and finally get off the bottom of the league.

Scott Bain and Holt were my man of the match (Shame we can't pick two) and Bain kept us in the game. For me our problem was up front and in the middle of the park and the lack of striker options really hurt us today.

I have always been one who wished good things for Vincent and hoped he would do well for us, he sits off players and never puts in a tackle and should have done much better to close down the Hibs player for their goal. After today I would rather we never used him again and either have O'Hara or bring in someone. 

I feel bad for Kamara as the boy has tons of class, but no one in the middle of the park who can match him in ability and thinking, otherwise we would have a excellent midfield this year.

Glad to get the point though. Break next week and The Rangers after that. Hopefully get our players back from injury and have a full squad to choose from and get right into that Rangers side.

We did very well to gain a point considering we have so many first team players out injured and no height in the forward line.

Great battling point and I'm delighted with it and would have gladly taken it before game started. Bain was superb and special mentions to Hendry, Waddel, Holt, McGowan and Kamara who I thought all had good games. Waddel and Hendry are both young, inexperienced and still learning and therefore make the odd error, but if I was the watching Gordon Strachan I'd be wondering why someone like Waddel isn't in the under 21 squad and I'd be keeping an eye on the progress Hendry makes thus season as there is a superb ball playing centre half there. Kamara again oozed class and Holt had one of his best games for me and took his penalty really well. McGowan put in a hell of a shift in three different positions and Bain was right back to his best.

Only down points for me were I thought Vincent was very poor and weak in the tackle and El Bak was a wasted jersey. Really hope we can get one or two bodies in before the deadline on Thursday and we're able to offload two or three also who are either not required or just not good enough for this level.

Not at he game, but from the perspective of TV , one point will do in the present circumstances (injuries)

Hibs might feel they deserved all points. But they didnae get them & that's all I care aboot. Scott Bain :)

2nd best today..but dig in and got a point..we struggle without a big target man up front as don't think we won a header in their half..also deacon looked like he was in the mood 1st half but we never got him involved in the 2nd..pleased with a point rather play crap and pick up a point than well and get beat.

Did well, thought we were really well organised at the back.  I do like the paring of Hendry and Waddle. However do expect O'Dea or Meekings to come in for him.  Would like to see a midfield enforcer brought in, thought Vincent was poor today. Much earned break, try and get a few players back to fitness and bring in a much needed goalscorer. 

Neil Lennon ........why any club would have him, I'll never know.

Is Meekings actually a thing? I doubt he'll ever be fit enough to play for us.

Anway, good point today - different type of performance but with no strikers we were never going to score a barrow load - what we did was done well enough.

El Bak miles off it today and as for Vincent? Well, let's just leave it at that.

cant argue with any of that, but wasn't too impressed with kamara either but didnt help that midfield was out fought again with no support for him. Thought the young defence did pretty well considering it was mostly one way traffic at times, apart from a striker its obvious we still need yet another midfielder !!

Everybody knows this, but we are so poor up front. There was no threat again today. If we can't bring anyone in, we will struggle this season, because we can't capitalise on some decent play, in every game so far. On the plus side the two young lads at the back again did well, Bain was terrific and Kevin Holt would have been my second choice for man of the match.

Thought we did better when McGowan moved back into midfield and they had some nice touches but no outball. Thought Deacon was ok in first half then disappeared. Vincent and El Bac struggled badly and shouldn't be starting but that said a good point against a tough Hibs squad. Bain was back to his best and hope Strachan took note from the stand.

Would be surprised if Bain was called up again in Strachans tenure after pulling out of a Scotland Squad to go on holiday.

Very impressed with Hibs today thought Stokes was tremendous if he had a decent strike partner Hibs will be a force in the league. Murray was rubbish. 

Thought we played well in spells, however lack of a target man up front hindered us. Why go with McGowan and not a youngster?

Nine man Dundee  deservedly take a point today . Vincent should not be allowed to wear a Dundee shirt again as he is  pub team material imho . El Bak may have almost scored and won us the game , but was otherwise a passenger .

                                                 Bain saves us from defeat with some great keeping. Cannot fault the rest of the lads today who put in a great  shift and played some lovely football- great to seen such commitment and fight . Soft goal given away again and conceded in the last 5 minutes of  half we won.I predicted again to within a minute when we would flog the goal .How many do we concede in the last few minutes of the first half and same again in the dying minutes of the match ? .If NM  cannot see that Vincent is a liability he needs to sit down with  some people who do and watch a few matches with Vincent  playing  and listen to a couple of expert neutral views .

  Fair result today and a point which lifts us off the bottom .

He did not get much distribution in the second half  which was hard to believe after the damage he was doing in the first half .

Bain, Hendry, Waddell, Holt, Kamara and Gowser got us a point today.

Deacon started well but was marked out of the game.

El Bak and Vincent went AWOL.l

Kerr is too young to be Vice Captain and the International break will do him good, why has he stopped hitting the bye line?

Allan is skilful but his use of the ball is very poor, maybe he needs better players around him.

Wolters is another useless signing he could not run past the statue of Rabbi Burns in the Albert Sq.

Not good enough today. Even the better performers were still poor. El Bak, Allen, Vincent, O'Hara, Wolters all need a good kick up the ar**. 

So glad of the point today but ready me the team were poor,thank feel for Scotty Bain
